PROJECT UPDATE: 26TH NOVEMBER 2018
The project has been delayed due to the lengthy process in obtaining the necessary approval from Dumfries and Galloway Council Building Standards in connection with Historic Building Consent and Building Warrant. The application was submitted on 10th July with final approval being granted on the 19th November 2018.
Our agent, Andrew MacOwan Associates Limited, is in discussions with the preferred contractor to firm up costs and agree a time line for a start date and a projected duration of the contract. It is anticipated that work will commence as early in 2019 as possible.
Worship will be conducted in the Church Hall during renovations.
An application for a gas supply into the church has been re-submitted.
A decluttering exercise is already under way throughout the church buildings to create space to accommodate the new plant room within the upstairs office.
Members of the congregation have been tasked with the removal of all the downstairs pews to allow contractors full access. It is the plan to have this task done in the first two weeks in January. Any members or friends willing to help with this dismantling task or interested in obtaining a pew should add their name to a list which will be at the information desk in the church vestibule or contact:
Should there be any deviation on the proposed time scale, details will be communicated via church news or the church social media resources.
