As you would expect, the leadership and congregation of Livingston Free Church of Scotland are always committed to ensuring that the congregation grows spiritually. We also want to ensure that the church is ready in every way possible to welcome people from the community to all our events. We aim to create an environment for teaching and fellowship, and where every individual can recognise the importance of his or her personal growth within a growing church.
To help us in these goals, we believe that some renovation of our church building is both important and necessary. The purpose of such a refurbishment would not simply be to give the church a ‘fresh look’ but to encourage more of the community to use the building and the resources available.
Of course, the refurbishment of the church must reflect the core values and strategy of the church, and Christ has to be at the centre of all we aspire to do.
In 2017, the Deacons’ Court convened a group to develop proposals for the refurbishment of the church and its location. As can be seen from the photos, although the church has been well-maintained well since it was built in the early 1980s, it would benefit from some careful and sensitive redecoration.
As a relatively small congregation, our finances, while not large, are always put to good use. However, it is very important that we continue, where possible, to increase our giving for the day to day work of the church and for maintaining our church building in a manner that is fit for gospel ministry in the twenty-first century.
For all these reasons, therefore, it goes without saying that we are deeply grateful for every donation towards our church refurbishment work.
