The church appears not to be in use anymore. The Hall (n.d.) appears to be used by a local resident to run a small plant nursery. (William MARTINSON, 2013 11 05)


"A larger church was built in 1865 on the west bank of the Kowie at the site of the present Wesley Church. Obviously by that time there had begun a population-swing away from the east bank".
