On this page you will find basic information about our services. On other pages there is more information and various contact details. Please feel free to get in touch if you would like more information or are visiting the area and would like to double check service times.

Minister's holiday
From Tuesday 27th September until October 21st inclusive, the minister is on holiday and will update this website after that

Find a Parish - To find us on a map why not try clicking on this link. 'Find a Parish' feature on the Church of Scotland web-site www.cos.churchofscotland.org.uk/church_finder/

Services - Are usually at 11am and 2pm alternating at each church building on a weekly basis, except during the summer. Please see the notice boards outside each church for weekly information. Term-time Sunday School at Ardnamurchan Church, Kilchoan, is fortnightly at 11am on the days that worship is at 2pm.

General Information - Visitors passing through Acharacle or visiting Kilchoan have been heard to ask, 'What do people do all day?' There is so much going on! Scenery to look at and clamber over, rivers to kayak down, fishing on lochs, rivers and the sea. Welcoming accommodation and fabulous food. Why not come and sample time in a beautiful remote and rural location?

Fundraising

If you are buying anything online would you consider buying through this website link? For each purchase made there is a donation to the churches - every penny counts! Thank you. It really is easy to register and contribute - try it.... www.easyfundraising.org.uk/causes/aandaparishes

Foodbank

There is a Foodbank in Fort William. Donations for the Foodbank can be left in each church, there is a dedicated box for donations, from where the goods will be collected and taken to Fort William. Tesco in Fort William has a dedicated 'bin' for donations.

Wellbeing.
Recently we were given information about Al-Anon Family Groups for Families Surviving Alcoholism (www.al-anonuk.org.uk). Watch out for a new page being developed which will have links to a variety of local and national groups that provide support for those in need. Meantime, if you think of a link that should be on that page please let us know through the contact section.
