£1.5m Church and Community Centre opens in Dumfriesshire

Thomas Baldwin reports on a long-term fundraising project initiated by a rural congregation.

DUNSCORE Church near Dumfries was packed on Sunday October 1 for a service, led by the Rev Jannie du Plessis, to celebrate the reopening and rededication of the church building that had been closed for a year.

The event, followed by a concert by a local choir, marked the end of a journey which started with the winter storms of 2013 which caused significant damage.

Investigation indicated that major repairs were required and the cost was well beyond the means of the congregation.
