Shettleston Trinity Methodist Church
Trinity Methodist Church, in Shettleston, Glasgow, is a stone-built church with slate pitched roofs, set in the heart of this community in the east end of Glasgow. It is already well used by the community, including a lunch club; mother baby group; baking, craft and computer groups; slimming groups; and Alcoholics Anonymous.
A recent inspection highlighted the urgent need for investment to repair and modernise the building. The National Churches Trust’s Project Development Grant will be used to plan a major project to create a Community Hub, a vital social space in one of the 2% most disadvantaged communities in Scotland. The grant will enable them to research development proposals and to design options to create an easily maintained and environmentally friendly building.
