A long-standing Aberdeen church has made a bid to demolish its former extension and create a replacement building.
Fountain Mission Hall in Woodside have sent documents to council planning bosses seeking to remove their extension and erect a one-and-a-half storey replacement.
The hall has stood on the site for more than 100 years and still attracts dozens of worshippers every week.
If approved, it would give space for a new kitchen area, extra toilet facilities, a multi-purpose room and increased storage space.
A report from Katrina Denholm architects, submitted to the council, said the work was required due to a lack of space at the building.
It stated: “The thriving fellowship is ideally located to meet the needs of the local community.
“At present, on Sunday mornings, there are approximately 55 adults and 40 children attending regularly.
“In addition to the regular Sunday services and Sunday school, the fellowship also meets for mid-week prayer and bible teaching.
“But there is limited space and storage, and the limitations of the current building mean that there are not enough toilets, the kitchen is too small for the catering it provides and has no servery.
“Therefore, with a combination of both refurbishment and a new extension, the fellowship will be best placed to not only continue to thrive but also best placed to engage and meet the needs of the surrounding community.”
