Presbyterians to visit Lochaber Presbytery.
From 15th to 18th September, an official delegation of Taiwanese Presbyterians, arranged by World Mission Council of the Church of Scotland, will be visiting us. There are twelve altogether coming to Scotland but just three are coming to visit Lochaber Presbytery. The delegates are: the Rev Fang Lan-Ting, the General Editor of the PCT Taiwan Church Press; Ms Chow Mei-Li, the Deputy Secretary General and Director of Policy Propaganda, Taiwan Solidarity Union (TSU); and Professor TSAY Ting-Kuei, Convener, Taiwan Referendum Alliance (TRA).
We are told that they are very interested to see how people, especially church people, are reacting to the referendum.
They will be at:
Fort William Duncansburgh MacIntosh Church Hall on Tuesday 16th September at 7.30pm;
Nether Lochaber Church on Wednesday afternoon, when the church will be open for prayer from 2pm-3pm, ending in a brief act of worship and a chance to meet them;
Kinlochleven Parish Church Hall on Wednesday 17th September at 7.30pm.
For more information, contact the Rev Malcolm Kinnear.
The summer Saturday soup and sandwich lunches have now finished for this session. Thanks to: all those who donated soups; the kitchen staff; the waiters; and those who prepared the hall and cleaned up afterwards. This fund raising venture was very successful both financially and for promoting the profile of the congregation within the community.

The D. Mac now is now connected to Wifi.
The new hall suite is now connected to wifi.
Melville Paton completed the installation work last week. He says: "There is now a powerful router in the Vestry, an Access Point in the Upper Room which relays the signal and another Access Point in the Old Hall. There is now excellent Wifi in the Old Hall, the New Hall and the Upper Room. In parts of the Church there is a weak signal. Broadband speed is about 16 Mg/s. A ‘phone or laptop somewhere in the building will latch on to the strongest signal."
Many thanks to Melville for his work and expertise. This will be a huge asset both to the congregation and to hall users.
