We are currently considering the possibility of building an annexe to the church building in order to provide more space for our activities and for the community to use. In August we produced a paper about the project which included the opportunity for people to indicate what they would be able to pledge towards the project.
If we include the pledges that we received (approx. £70,000) along with funds already available (£40,000) then this would currently cover about a third of the cost of the project which is currently just over £300,000.
The Commission and Leadership have agreed that we should continue with the project and the next stage of the process will be to
- Seek planning consent.
- Continue investigating other sources of funding. There will be some funding from the Church of Scotland but it may be that there are other sources of funding available and we have a small group who are going to look into this.
At the moment we will not be processing any of the “pledges” received and this will only happen when we have greater clarity on these issues.
If you have any questions about the project then please contact Andrew on email@example.com or a member of the leadership.
