Vote on the proposed development – this Sunday 20th August

The new entrance would be through what is now the Session Room exterior wall. Inviting and well lit, this feature will provide a welcoming ‘shop window’ to the church.

Everyone is reminded that this Sunday sees a very important vote on the proposed project to develop our church buildings.

All members and adherents present on Sunday are entitled to vote and it will be a simple YES or NO answer to the question as to whether you are supportive of going ahead with the project or not.

We are hoping for a very good turnout on Sunday.

The open circulation area would encourage people to mix, chat and have informal meetings.

Deidre had some greate and positive things to say about the project, the community and the church. Here's the full text of her speech.I’m seeing such a difference in Granton these days.

Blue Skies Development – update

Since we last updated the congregation on our Blue Skies Development plans, a lot of progress has been made. As most of you will know we were successful in getting a Climate Challenge grant - Granton Goes Greener - which, in addition to the Climate Project work such as cycling, rescued bread and clothes swap, will allow us to make significant improvements to the windows, heating and lighting in the church buildings. We have also continued to develop the idea for a new kitchen, working with groups, individuals and experts to get the best from their experience. They have helped ...
