Building Report –

Feasibility Study – The costings in the Feasibility Study were lower than expected. However, they are likely to increase. The work is envisaged as being done in steps and not as one large project. There was concern that Presbytery might not support the restoration given that the building has a ‘D’ listing in the Presbytery Plan (meaning the future of the building is uncertain). It was agreed that Presbytery be approached to meet with the Kirk Session. Other alternatives were discussed such as continuing ongoing maintenance of the building but it is difficult to move forward until the Session is aware of Presbytery’s current position.

Community Development Company – It was agreed that the CDC be approached regarding shared use of the building.

Worship

The Harvest service was well attended and 15 people stayed for lunch.

Visiting Preachers

Jean Whitton is to be asked to cover for 20th November.

Clavinova - There was an offer of a clavinova to the congregation. As there is currently no organist/ pianist, it was suggested that the clavinova be offered to the Community Centre.

Alan Macpherson will play on 26th October.
