Over the past couple of years we have been looking at the possibility of building an annexe that would give us more space on a Sunday morning for our church activities and also be available for community use through the week.
Last year our planning application was approved and we are now in the process of moving the project forward. We are currently looking at other sources of funding and recently asked folks to give towards the project which will cost in the region of £350,000.
Ross Thomson who leads the Annexe Project Team recently wrote:
A huge thanks to all those members and friends of the Dunfermline East congregation who, combined, have pledged to give a total sum of around £114,000 towards the cost of building the church annexe. It is a fantastic sum of money and sets us well on our way to achieving the target required when we add it to the £64,000 already set aside for the project. Understanding the finances that are available will also help us to complete the application forms that will be necessary if we are to seek additional funding from other organisations. This is an activity that we expect will gather pace in the coming weeks and months.
Another activity that will begin to take our attention is the building warrant application. The architect and engineer have now provided an indication of fees and time required to prepare the drawings ready for submission and a meeting has now been set up with the Church of Scotland reps and the architect to discuss this along with the timelines for the wider project. This meeting will take place on the evening of Tuesday 24th October so please pray that this is a productive time.
