The Presbytery of Lochaber will be carry out a Local Church Review of the congregations of Strontian, Ardgour and Morvern. 2 members of Presbytery along with 2 from neighbouring Abernethy Presbytery will join with us in a Zoom meeting on Friday 11th December 2pm to hear of what’s going on around the local congregations, and of our hopes for the next few years.
If you are able to join in the Zoom meeting – which will use a specific login (not the usual AKSM Zoom login) – please be in touch with Rev Donald for the Zoom details.
There is a questionnaire which can be completed by those unable to attend the Zoom meeting. It can be downloaded here (and the questions are below) and you might be able to pass this (safely) to friends and neighbours who may be able to participate.
