The Dry Rot discovered at St Matthew’s Possilpark is more extensive than at first thought and the estimates for repair now exceed £35,000 before redecoration. However, the small congregation is planning a different fundraising activity each month this year and we have been strengthened by real ecumenical sharing – our local RC Church gave us a cheque for £500 at the weekend. Just when we were progressing with preparations to fund a development worker for St. Matthew’s Centre, energy has to be re-directed.
The church part of our building is now closed, which makes for interesting compromises – Sunday Lent 1, as we heard in Genesis about the Garden of Eden, we had to share the Hall with the central Scotland Permaculture Course!
Any donations to assist with the repairs would be gratefully received and can be sent to:
