Building Project

Building

Together

Our future is bright if we all shine our light!  Over the past year Ibrox Parish Church has taken difficult, but necessary steps to create a more sustainable future. We are a multigenerational church who has a heart for the community. We want all who come through our doors to feel a sense of ownership and pride.

This plan shows a reduction of our previous footprint by nearly half and reimagines the remaining space to be energy efficient, multi-functional, bright and welcoming.  Improvements will bring running costs within budget and keep our doors open long-term to be a resource and hub for the community.  This brochure gives a glimpse of our vision.  We hope you will consider investing in our future together. 

 

July 2023 Update:

Our building project has finally been given the green light! Construction will begin on 10 July and is anticipated to last 4-5 months.  We will have a final service of celebration in our building on 9 July at 11am.  From 16 July, for the duration of the works, we will worship on Sundays with our cluster partners at Sherbrooke Mosspark Parish Church (240 Nithsdale Road G41 5AD).  Please note their worship starts at 10.30am!! 

It is not too late to support our project.  We are still short of our full funding goal, though the phasing structure of th eproject allows for the majority of the work to proceed.  Please consider a one-time gift towards our building project so we can include now as much of the intended work as possible.

March 2023 Update:

We have received additional funding from the Joseph Rank Trust (£25,000) and from Garfield Weston (£25,000). Many thanks to those finders for supporting our vision to create modern and sustainable community space. We are awaiting the approval of the Glasgow Presbytery Mission Plan before building work can begin. Thank you for your patience as we sort out these last permissions and hopefully begin work soon.’

October 2022 Update:

We have received all permissions through the city and have gone to tender with a builder.  With those in hand, we are in the process of applying for the remaining grants we've identified in hopes of closing our funding gap.  Depending on turnaround timings from funding bodies, we hope for work to begin soon after the new year.  Thank you to everyone who has supported us thus far.

November 2021 Update:

In July 2021 we submitted our plans to the city council and for planning permission and still await their decision.  Once this is granted, we will be able to pursue our remaining list of grant and funding bodies that require both planning permission and tenders to apply.

We are currently about 75% of the way funded and are looking for a final £130,000 to be fully funded.  We completed a capital fundraising campaign amongst our congregational members in autumn 2020 and received pledges of support of £45,043 (including gift aid) over the next 4 years. 

We are so grateful to the generosity of our members and to the following organisations for their support of our project:

  • Ferguson Bequest £10,000

  • Church of Scotland General Trustees £75,000

  • Bellahouston Bequest £10,000

  • Baird Trust £10,000”
