Latest Update - November 2017

We’ve received from the architects, Lee Boyd, the second set of plans which have been seen by the Kirk Session and we’re now ready to share them with the congregation. Please view the Revised pdf links below. These are on display in the Vestibule, Small Hall and corridor between the halls. If you can, please do have a good look and let us have any comments or questions.

It’s important to point out that the illustrations are only for illustrative purposes. No decisions on fittings and furniture will be made until the congregation agrees with the way forward.

This set of plans is estimated to cost £2.2million - a reduction of a third on the original £3.3 million.

We’ve managed to reduce the costs by making some changes to the original scope.

The main changes are:  

  • No development of the balcony
  • Re-siting of the proposed lift, still allowing access to all levels
  • The vestry remains where it is so no change to that end of the sanctuary with exit doors  to the halls staying as they are at present

There will be a congregational meeting on Saturday 27th January at  9.30am in the morning. We’re hoping as many of you as possible will take the opportunity to come along and share your views. We’ll let you have more information about the meeting in January. In the meantime please put the date in your New Year diaries.

BUILDING A VISION at the HEART of our COMMUNITY LEAFLET

The Steering Group are keen that you give your views/questions in writing if possible (to the email address above). Don’t think your views don’t count, all views are relevant and we want to hear from you. If it is difficult for you to access the building or the website let us know verbally or by a note to the Church Office and we’ll make sure your contribution is included in the discussions.
