The memorial stone was laid in 1902 by Mr John Adam. Records show that there was a discussion on how many memorial stones should be laid. The Building Committee agreed to only one.

The initial estimate for the building of the church was £3,500.
In order to raise funds a three day Bazaar was held in the McLellan Galleries in December 1902. It raised the sum of £2,150 and a memento of it is the multi-signatured curtain which is still in the church today. The eventual cost of the church was just over £6,000.
