Session Four: Becoming Sustainable (you do not need to have attended the previous sessions)

About this event

Thursday 3rd February 2022, 10am – 11.30am

Are you a community group thinking about taking ownership of your local church? Are you already managing your church for the benefit of the community? This free online event is for you.

Heritage Trust Network and Historic Churches Scotland are joining forces to host the fourth event in this series for any group contemplating the future of their church building. At this event we will hear a case study from Dinah McDonald, trustee of Historic Kilmun, who will talk about their journey to taking ownership, building repairs, fundraising and the current focus of becoming sustainable. Historic Kilmun ceased to be a Parish Church three years ago and is now a secular building that caters for weddings, funerals and similar events, for those of any faith and none. It is also the hub for the Faith in Cowal Pilgrimage Trail. After the presentation, we will have a Q&A with Dinah followed by an informal discussion with attendees. If you have already gone through this process, we strongly encourage you to attend and share your experiences with others - this is an opportunity to tell us your views and to hear how the heritage sector can help.

This event will continue our open forum for communities working with their local church buildings. We want to connect you with others who have undertaken similar projects and with sources of support that are currently available. We also hope to learn about your experiences to shape future guidance and help.

This event will be broadcast on Zoom Meeting, with live transcript from Otter.ai, if you will have any difficulties with this or any other access issues, please contact Sarah Pearce on sarah.pearce@heritagetrustnetwork.org.uk for assistance.

The event will be recorded, but no element of audience participation will be shared publicly at any time.
