Edinburgh church details £2.2m vision

Blackhall St Columba’s Church at Queensferry Road, Edinburgh, is on track to deliver on a £2.2m to overhaul the facilities offered with work commencing this May.

A spacious expansion is planned for the B-listed landmark by removing pews and redeveloping the sanctuary, halls and entrances to create a more comfortable, flexible and accessible space.

In a statement the Rev Benjamin J A Abeledo wrote: “… we hope to refurbish, upgrade and adapt the church sanctuary, halls and other areas within the buildings to make them more suitable, comfortable and user friendly.

“Lee Boyd Architects have drawn up plans and have presented them to the Congregation for consideration. In the coming months, a decision will be made in terms of what needs to be done, priorities and coordinate the various phases which will be required for the completion of the agreed project.”

First phase work will include the addition of movable seating and a café as well as creation of a new entrance vestibule to provide a more welcoming impression for visitors.

Pews will be replaced with flexible seating to emcourage greater community use
