Killellan Halls

View Photographs

Last updated 21st April

As the result of a recommendation of the Kirk Session and as announced at the Annual Congregational meeting on 22nd March 2015, the church halls in Main Street will now be known as the West Halls and the new halls at the church will be known as the Killellan Halls.


SPONSOR A CHAIR: The halls are just about ready to be unveiled in the next week or so and we are looking for your support to purchase chairs for the new halls. The chairs are £45 and,  should you wish to sponsor any, please add your name to the list at the back of the church or let Donald or myself know.  Cheques or cash placed in an envelope with your name can be left at the back of the Church in the extension box or posted through my letter box at 40 Hillfoot, Houston.  Thank You,  Elaine Rowan.                       

Build Contract (March report)

Building work is progressing rapidly towards conclusion next month. The scaffolding in the atrium has been taken down allowing light to reach the East Window of the church. The finishing and decoration of the halls and passageways is progressing and the lighting system has been completed in the ground floor and provides an even distribution of light. The lift has been installed and demonstrated to be easy to operate. The kitchen and plumbing equipment will be fitted shortly.
Monthly site meetings are held with the builder and design team and a number of minor changes are under consideration that either increase or reduce the cost, but within the agreed budget, but this is subject to a number of last minute claims for additional costs being justified.
The Moderator visited the annex on 14th March and seemed impressed with the building and asked a lot of detailed questions. The opportunity was taken to show members of the steering group and WHAMT round the annex.

Progress has been good over the last month, in spite of the poor weather, and the building should be completed on time in April. The stairs are in and several rooms have had the plasterboard and ceilings completed. We expect to start drawing down on our loan from the General Trustees of the Church of Scotland next month and this has to be paid back over the next 3 years from members’ continuing pledges and events including the Kirk Carnival. Your continued support of both these initiatives is greatly appreciated. The Moderator of the Church of Scotland the Rt. Rev. John Chalmers will visit the Annexe on Saturday 14th March during his tour of the Presbytery.
