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.
Grasping the Nettle Conference
On Saturday 4th February the Presbytery of Lochaber held a one day conference led by Iain Morris on the theme "Grasping the Nettle". The conference explored "The God Question" through the lens of contemporary science with a view to transforming the public understanding of key issues in the science / God debate.
Those attending the conference were inspired by Iain's leadership and understanding of his subject.
