The Capstone Centre is our modern, multipurpose hub situated in the heart of Alness. It is owned and jointly managed by Rosskeen Free Church and Rosskeen Trading (our commercial arm).
The buildings making up the complex have at various times been a supermarket, a pub, a bank and a council service point.
Probably the best known and certainly the busiest part of the centre is Grounded Café & Takeaway (previously known as the Capstone Café). Grounded serves a range of freshly made barista coffees and loose leaf teas as well as delicious home baking, home-made soup, light snacks and cooked meals. Grounded is family friendly with a superb kids play area and free wifi. The cafe is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10:00 and Karl and the team will see that you are well looked after.
Rosskeen Free Church holds Sunday services in the Capstone Auditorium at 10:30 and 17:00 featuring contemporary praise music and all are warmly welcome to join with us there. The church office can be found upstairs in the old service point and is open from 08:30-1600 Mon-Thurs and 08:30-12:30 on Fridays.
We also run a weekly lunch club (Wednesdays) and Road to Recovery (Tuesday evening) and host Highland Foodbank (Tuesday and Friday).
In addition to all of that we have various rooms and facilities available to hire for functions, conferences, meetings, parties and the like with catering options available from the Grounded team.
