Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our refurbishment work so far - we are so very grateful.

The leadership of Livingston Free Church of Scotland are committed to seeing the congregation develop spiritually and numerically: with the renovation of the church building integral to that commitment.

The refurbishment of the church should reflect the core values and the strategy for the church with Christ at the centre of what we aim to do. We should aim to create an environment for teaching and fellowship and for the individual to recognise the importance of his or her personal growth within a growing church.

The purpose of the refurbishment of the church is not simply to give it a ‘fresh look’ but to encourage more of the community to use the building and the resources available. 

In 2017 the Deacons’ Court convened a group to develop proposals for the refurbishment of the church and the grounds. The existing building requires a considerable investment to refurbish it. As can be seen from the photos, although the church has been maintained well over the last 35 years, the building, which was built in the early 1980s, has grown to look dated and tired. 

As a congregation, our finances are not strong and it is very important that we continue and where possible increase our giving for the day to day work of the church. We are looking for financial assistance from the congregation and former members of the congregation to assist us to fund the commencement of the work.

The refurbishment plan at present has a number of stages for the improvement of the church. 

Below is a brief outline of some areas we are looking at.

The Entrance area
Improved access for pushchairs, wheelchairs etc.

Blinds, carpets, furnishings, lighting.

Main hall, vestry and minor rooms
Chairs, tables, flooring (varnish and carpets), lighting.
