AS PART of a reorganisation programme Church of Scotland has deemed Buchanan and Fintry churches unfit for purpose or meeting the needs of the congregation.
As a result these churches are scheduled to be closed by the end of the year.
Some ELLCT members were able to attend a meeting yesterday (Sunday 17 July) to make their views know, but for those unable to go along, you can sign an *online petition to keep Buchanan church here.
Regardless of whether or not you are a regular church-goer or you religious views, Buchanan church plays a vital role in the well-being of the community,
* Note: the petition is free to sign – after ‘signing’ scroll to the bottom of the page to skip any request for payment.
My family have been associated with Buchanan Church for several generations. Have been christened, married and buried in the churchyard. My wife and I regularly attend the morning services and will be devastated if it is forced to close. It would break up a real family community.
