Lochee Central Baptist Centre was closed as a church 20 years ago and the remaining few members of the congregation were relocated with Central Baptist Church in the centre of Dundee. The Lochee Centre has been well maintained and used for youth work and community groups in the local area. Central Baptist would like to plant a church in Lochee working in partnership with 20schemes. As part of their support, Central will continue to maintain the centre and provide accommodation on Lochee for a church planter and his family.
