Lochaber is a small Presbytery of eight charges in the West Highlands of Scotland. Our Presbytery is centered 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.”
The vision of the Church of Scotland is to be a church which seeks to inspire the people of Scotland and beyond with the Good News of Jesus Christ through enthusiastic, worshipping, witnessing, nurturing and serving communities.
