History

This congregation originated in a desire to have a Secession place of worship in the eastern part of the town. The persons thus acting met for the first time as a congregation in the Old Roman Catholic chapel, Meadowside, on the 18th of February 1737, but removed to the Caledonian Hall, Castle Street. In 1841, a place of worship was built near the Old Portgate.
