Worship, Sunday 19th November
Final preparations underway for the last 'normal' worship until Jan 14th! Over the next few weeks there are so many extras to fit in - communion and a couple of baptisms!

Preparing for this on Monday (after being at the Nevis Centre in Fort William on Saturday and two services of worship, one with a baptism, on Sunday).

Saturday 25th November
The Presbytery of Lochaber will have a stall at this event on the 25th in Fort William. Come and find out when worship will be celebrated in the run up to Christmas - oh, and try out some Messy Church activities while you are there!

Dates for your diaries!
