Built back in 1892 the Free North Church is a landmark on the Inverness skyline, with the tallest spire in the city and a capacity for over 1300 people. The church is a significant and iconic part of the built heritage of the Highland Capital. It is the last heritage church building in the city centre still in use for its original ecclesiastical purpose. The attractive front elevation faces the River Ness and is the backdrop for many tourist photos.
We want to preserve this historical church building for future generations and to maintain the gospel witness within Inverness city centre. Inevitably with a large, B listed building this comes at a cost.
There are significant, urgent repairs needed to the stonework in the spire and the front elevation of the church as well as work to prevent any further damage, water ingress, or risk of any part of the building becoming unstable. We are working with Historic Environment Scotland to protect this building.
The cost of this work is £145,000, we are expecting to have a grant for 40% of this cost but we’re still looking to raise the remaining funds.
Can you help us raise the money for this much needed project?
