Scottish Church Repairs

Scottish Church Building Repairs

Seven distinguished churches and a cathedral are to have urgent and essential repairs carried out thanks to a funding package announced today:

Scottish Church Repairs

Over £1.55 million of funding will ensure that these fine buildings are once again wind and watertight providing a venue for worship and a hub for community activity. The funding will also be used to explore the fascinating history of many of the churches which will be shared with the community and visitors through events, publications and digital media.
