SOBS

Survivors of bereavement by suicide are planning to start a local group for anyone affected by the suicide of a family member or friend. We'll be offering the Upper Room as premises for that group in to meet so watch out for more details to follow, or let one of the ministers, Richard or Morag know if you want us to get more details for you.

The Mod is coming to Fort William and we look forward to welcoming visitors then. The Gaelic service will take place in Duncansburgh MacIntosh Church at 3.00p.m. on Sun 15th October and the Celtic Praise service will also be in Duncansburgh that evening (time to be confirmed). The church and halls will be in use that week for Mod events and competitions.
