Make a gift to the Roof Appeal…

It’s been standing as a beacon in the town’s High Street since 1842 and John Knox church is still today very much at the heart of the community.

The Scottish weather has however taken its toll over the years and now the building needs a new roof.

Members of the church are active in living out the Christian faith and contribute in different ways to the local community. As well as offering a drop-in centre and space for local groups including uniformed organisations, Gardening Club and the Historical Society, the congregation runs activities for youth, money courses and job clubs.

The church has an important history both to the town and wider Scottish church history and sees visitors from across the world.

The current roof is showing its age and it now needs to be renewed so that John Knox can continue to be a place of worship and service to the people of Stewarton.

Folk are very generous in their support for John Knox but additional funds are now needed to make the necessary repairs.

Minister, Rev Gavin Niven, said “At John Knox we very much see our building as a base from which we can go out and serve in the community and beyond. We hope people in Stewarton, whether they come to the church or not, would be keen to invest in what is not only a historical landmark and an attractive feature in the centre of our town but also a base from which current and future generations can serve the people of Stewarton.”
