Good news! We can now announce that our building repair project – for the spire, tower and front of our Grade A Listed church building – will be starting on Monday 20th August and is expected to finish by the end of this year. As all work is to the outside of the building, there will be no disruption to any of our activities or services.
The repair project focuses on work that is needed to keep the building structurally stable and watertight; by doing these necessary repairs we are safeguarding the future of our building for many years to come.
The £154,876 repair project has been made possible by both your generous giving through tithes and offerings and the generosity of several grant funders, including Historic Scotland (£51,911), Heritage Lottery Fund (£47,000), Scottish Churches Architectural Heritage Trust (£3,000) and the Baird Trust (£3,000). We also expect to receive approximately £25,071 from the Listed Places of Worship Grant Scheme to cover the VAT element of the project cost.
Here are some words from two of our grant funders:
