During the time of the roof renewal midweek services will be held in the large hall.

Netherlee Sanctuary Roof Project
Erection of scaffolding around the exterior of the sanctuary commenced in early September 2022. The re-roofing,
upgrading of guttering and downpipes and stonework repair is scheduled for completion in March 2023.
The estimated cost of the work is around £800,000.
Whilst the proceeds from the sale of Stamperland Church and Stamperland Manse
should cover most of the work we are looking for donations from our members -
please see our appeal for our Raise the Roof Fund.
At the beginning of November 2022 the Raise the Roof Fund had received over £47,000 in donations.
We will have access to the Sanctuary and the Lesser Sanctuary on Sundays throughout the contract
so worship will continue as normal. Members of the congregation are encouraged to use the rear
(no-step) entrance and the Welcome Hall entrance whilst the re-roofing work is in progress
in order to avoid the scaffolding at the main entrance to the sanctuary.
During the week, Health & Safety regulations will prevent access to spaces “under the builders”
and this will impact on the Wednesday service, the Monday Lunch Club and the Guild.
The Guild meets on Thursdays at 2.00 pm from September to March.
Please see the Order of Service for information on the next meetings.

The Netherlee and Stamperland Church Forum meets once a month between September and April.
For details of meetings please see the August 2022 Newsletter.
The Book Club has been meeting virtually, via Zoom. We usually have a light-hearted discussion and a chat about our chosen book. Not everyone likes every book, but that’s ok, as it makes the discussions more interesting.
We all enjoy the conversations and the fact that we read books we might not have chosen ourselves.
We are a friendly group of people and welcome new members.
