Memorial to Gilbert Anderson and his son Hugh, Cromarty parish ministers in the seventeenth century, in the vestry of the East Church
‘Save our Church’ banner at the East Church, 2006. The SRCT works in partnership with communities to bring about the restoration and regeneration of their church, and to foster a sense of pride and ownership
