Welcome to the web site of the Church of Scotland Presbytery of Lochaber.
We are part of the Church of Scotland
We are a very small Presbytery of only eight charges based in Lochaber in the West Highlands of Scotland. Our Presbytery is centred around Fort William, which is dominated by Ben Nevis, the highest mountain in the British Isles. Tourism is the main activity in our area with skiing in winter, walking and cycling all year round.
"The role of presbytery in the national church is to:
· Encourage worship, ministry and mission in the presbytery area;
· Strengthen and support local congregations and their ministries;
· Provide oversight of congregations, ministers and elders.”
Report of the Panel on Review and Reform to the 2010 General Assembly.
The Rev Dr Richard Corbett, minister of Kilmallie, is the Moderator Designate of Presbytery for the 2014/15 Session.
He will be installed as Moderator on 10th June.
Rural ministry offers challenges and joys. In the video above Rev Donald McCorkindale and Rev Mairi Perkins discuss some of their experiences of ministering in a rural setting. Donald and Mairi together serve the rural linked charges of Ardgour and Kingairloch linked with Morvern linked with Strontian in our Presbytery.
