LEGACY UPDATE – An update in February let you know that the Kirk Session had come to the view that proceeding with its preferred option of creating a new church on the site opposite Williamwood High School was likely to result in a high risk of delay and too large a funding gap to make it feasible. It went on to say that the Session had gone back to the other options in the original feasibility report, i.e. building a new church on our existing site, probably on the manse site, or re-designing the current sanctuary building to increase its flexibility, replacing the old halls with a modern extension to the sanctuary building. An architect has been appointed to examine these two options in detail, assess what we might be able to do with remaining parts of the current site and to open discussion with the planners. We hope that the architect’s report will be ready by the summer and once the Session has studied it, the intention is to pass as much information as we can to you in order that we can come to a decision about the best way forward. We remain committed, as I am sure you are also, to creating a sustainable, worshipping congregation for future generations and this work will help determine how best that might be achieved. Gordon Dickson – Legacy Coordinating Group.
