End of the road for prominent Forfar church?

Forfar was dropped a bombshell [sic] on Friday afternoon with the news that the most prominent church building in town – the East & Old Parish – is to close its doors.

It was confirmed by the Church of Scotland that, following arbitration, St. Margaret’s Church has been chosen as the preferred site to house a new unified congregation.

Both the East & Old and St. Margaret’s Churches had already agreed a basis of union after many months of talks, but one of the main stumbling blocks was which building would be retained and which would close.
