Phase 2 Preservation Work Commences

PHASE 2 PRESERVATION WORK COMMENCES AT THE CHURCH

Work is now starting at the Church Building on Erskine Ferry Road to repair and conserve the exterior church walls and windows. This follows on from the extensive work carried out on the Church Tower in 2018, and is the second phase of a 3 phase program to return all of the masonry to an “as built” condition. 

The Church will be cloaked in Scaffolding throughout the 2 month project but will remain open for Sunday worship throughout the time. 

The work will be undertaken by Limerich Limited, one of Scotland’s leading traditional building maintenance, conservation and restoration specialists, and will be overseen by our appointed Conservation expert, Mr Nic Boyes.

We have been very fortunate to receive grants from the Ferguson Bequest Fund, and from Viridor Credits Environmental Company, via the Scottish Landfill Communities Fund.

Gareth Williams, Operations Manager at Viridor Credits, said “many of our churches suffer from the use of non-porous cement, which can lead to long-term damage to the fabric of the building. We are pleased to support the church in the latest phase of works, which will secure the future of the building for generations.”

Whilst the grants allow us to continue with phase 2 of the work, fundraising continues to ensure that the full project can be completed. The Church would welcome any donations from members or the general public to secure the future of the building.
