The idea of erecting a permanent Presbyterian Church at Bombay was first seriously discussed at a meeting of the settlers of Ramarama and Williamson Clearing at Mr. James Rutherford’s House, Great South Rd on 29th January 1866. It carried on the vision of the Rev Thomas Norrie who was responsible for building at least 18 other similar buildings in his parish that served as places of worship, schools and centers for each community.
