Over the past few years we have been looking at the possibility of building an annexe that would give us more space for our church activities and also be a valuable resource for community use through the week.
The annexe will contain a hall with a removable partition so that the hall can be divided into 2. There is also a kitchenette and disabled toilet along with storage space.
Thanks to those who have pledged and given towards the project, along with grants/loans from the Church of Scotland and other funders, we are now at the stage when we can go ahead with the work. The contractor will begin on site on the 1st July and the work should be completed before the end of the year.
The project will cost around £380,000. Along with reserves and the giving of the congregation amounting to £130,000 we have received £120,000 through grant applications as well as a loan from the General Trustees of up to £130,000 repayable by 2031. The intention is that pledges/giving from the congregation along with hall rental will enable us to pay off this loan as soon as possible.
During the work the use of the current building should not be significantly affected, however access to the car park, especially during working hours, will be very limited. An update on this will be provided in the near future.
It is still possible to give towards the project and you can do so by completing the Pledge Form HERE or by contacting Russel our treasurer, using the form below.
