JOHN 3:16-17

16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 
17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

AFRICAN CHILDREN'S CHOIR

Once again we had the privilege of the company of the African Children's Choir on 19th April 2017 and what a brilliant evening we had. The children were most delightful and enthusiastic about their singing and dancing and the congregation were just as enthusiastic with their applause. 


                      


                 
  
  Glasgow Evangelical Church wins Heritage Lottery Fund support

Glasgow Evangelical Church has received a Places of Worship Grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and Historic Environment Scotland (HES)  for the Repairs and Restoration of their Category ‘A’ listed building, in Glasgow’s historic Cathedral Square.

The project aims to carry out the restoration of the building on Cathedral Square and encourage more people to share the heritage. Grants of £116,400 have been received from both the HERITAGE LOTTERY FUND and HISTORIC ENVIRONMENT SCOTLAND totalling £232,800 as part of the Places of Worship Grant scheme.  

The project will carry out essential conservation work to the Category-A Listed Building, involving urgent repairs to the tower and roof.  In addition, the project will undertake activities designed to share the heritage of the building with as wide an audience as possible.  Activities will involve training opportunities on-site, site visits, provision of interpretation, resource packs, guided walks, talks, presentations and developing a digital model of the historic building.

Please check our HLF and HES RESTORATION PROJECT page for more information.



 
 

 

RESTORATION WORK 
As you can read above we were successful in our Application and funding has been granted. Work to the outside of the building is complete. The Tower has been lined to prevent further erosion of the stone on the inside, some stones have been replaced and some of them cleaned. Work is still ongoing to the Sanctuary as the ceiling needed more work than first thought so the time for completing the work inside has been extended. One half of the ceiling is complete and painted, and they are now working on the other half which includes the area above the Organ. We are hopeful it will not be much longer before it is completed inside.

TRANSFIGURATION WINDOW
 

What a great day we had on Doors Open Day. Although The Sanctuary had a lot of scaffolding erected round the area of the Chancel and Organ it did not stop the visitors coming in and having a walk around. 138 visitors.

The only drawback was the main window behind the Organ, it was hidden behind the scaffolding but as the day progressed and one of the volunteers had her laptop with her we put it on and showed photos of the main Window and the Organ area prior to the scaffolding being erected - this went down well with the visitors.
