Thanks to your tremendous support, the amount pledged towards the extension has now topped £400,000 and external grants of £181,000 have been promised, plus a loan from the General Trustees. However we still need to raise funds to pay off the loan and a number of events have been arranged for this autumn including:

·        The £10 Challenge – the end date has been extended to 30th November, so it is not too late to take up the Challenge – pick up your £10 at the back of the Church.

·        An Art Exhibition on 1st November in the Church

·        A concert by the Bearsden Fiddlers on 29th November in the Church Hall

·        A Christmas concert by the Arkleston Singers on 7th December in the Church

·        The ongoing “sponsor a slate” initiative – sponsor sheet at the back of the church

Please support any or all of these events .

Any additional or increased pledges will help to offset the amount we need to raise through events.  Pledge forms are available at the back of the church or can be downloaded from below.
