On the King's Road

‘Unless the Lord builds the house the builders labour in vain.’ Psalm 127:1
Work continues apace with the church building project.
Kirk Session and Congregation Committee have recently confirmed the appointment of Hugh J O’Boyle building contractors who have significant experience in conservation work. They will be undertaking stonework restoration, repairs to window framing, new storm glazing, flat roof replacement, new rainwater goods, re-slating of ancillary roofs and upgrading of entrance porches. Some work to the interior of the building will also be required and during this particular time services will be held in the Elliott Hall.
Work commenced on 13th August and is anticipated to take around five months.
Unfortunately there will be some disruption around the church site during the work. The contractor will be using the area along the Kings Road side of the church for their accommodation and may require other areas of the car park for storage. This will result in a temporary reduction in car parking, a good reason to walk or cycle to church for those who can.
Key things to know:
- A Master Plan will be developed looking at the whole site, outlining what development is required and offering phased solutions
- The initial budget is £2.5m (including fees, contract work, fit-out, contingency and VAT
- £500,000 of this has been allocated to the restoration work
- The project is estimated to take 5 years
