Presbytery agreed at its meeting on 11th June to restructure the Working Groups. Two groups, Ministry and Resourcing & Mission and Community will focus on inward and outward looking matters. Presbytery members are asked to notify the clerk by 30th June about which group they would prefer to be involved in. It is anticipated that all members will be active in at least one group.
Church and Society Working group will become part of the new Mission and Community Group. The current group has a meeting arranged for 19th June, 10am at Duncansburgh MacIntosh Church and will be looking at:
- Local pilgrim routes
- Provision of information about local ministers at care homes, and hospitals.
- Lochaber Hope’s Peer to Peer mental health support group
Each congregation should have a Church and Society contact and it is hoped that many will be able to attend this meeting.
Good to hear of the Church development plans at Ardnamurchan Church, Kilchoan. Ardnamurchan is the only Lochaber church listed on the National Church Trust website You can add yours at explorechurches.org/add-your-church
We will hear more on Saturday at Going for Growth from Steve Aisthorpe about Tourism and Pilgrimage. It would be good to ensure that we are all listed on this website.
