TIREE PARISH CHURCH FABRIC APPEAL
Tiree Parish Church values the Christian traditions that have helped shape our island. For hundreds of years successive church buildings have played an important part of the Island life.
Although we are in a time of transition for the Church at large, we are still convinced of the need for a Church building in the present and for future generations. Both happy and sad times in our lives are often marked with Church Services – and frequently involve the wider community. Therefore we are appealing to everyone connected to Tiree to help us resolve our current problem.
We are reluctantly having to face closing one of our church buildings. Both buildings require huge sums of money to bring them up to standard.
A recent meeting of the congregation agreed by a majority vote to retain Heylipol Church, however to bring Heylipol Church up to an acceptable standard will cost in excess of £300,000.
We are now appealing to the community to give generously towards the renovation work required for Heylipol Church.
Donations may be made at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Scarinish, or online by using sort code 832703, account number 00129059, or by Standing Order or Direct Debit.
