An email update on 22/1/2021 by Lionel Boxer advised as folllows: 'Margaret (nee McIndoe) Castle purchased this church and renovated it. She has left it in a trust that fully funds the church. The church was built on James George McKinnon's  (Margaret's great uncle and my great great uncle) farm and donated to the Presbyterian Church. In 2010 this church was re-opened. Regular services are not held, but monthly services and talks are conducted on the last Sunday of each month."
