Church interior prior to refurbishment

Services in Railway Street Presbyterian Church this Sunday (30th September) will be the last services before refurbishment of the church interior. These services will mark another important milestone in the history of this congregation since its foundation in 1860.

The morning communion service will be led by the minister, the Rev Brian Gibson and the senior minister, the Very Rev Dr Howard Cromie will take part. At the evening service, the choir will lead the singing of favourite psalms, paraphrases and hymns; this service will be conducted by the pastoral assistant, the Rev Bob Lockhart.

Work on the re-roofing of the church was completed last year and this second phase of refurbishment will involve repairs to and strengthening of the ceiling, re-vamping of the dais area including relocation of the organ console, rewiring and the installation of emergency lighting and alarms, new pews and gas-fired heating.

During the renovation work, services will be held in the Church Hall.
