Who are we?

Fort William: Duncansburgh MacIntosh Parish Church is a congregation of the Church of Scotland within the Presbytery of Lochaber

The congregation derived its name following the union in 2007 of the two Fort William Church of Scotland Congregations—Duncansburgh and MacIntosh Memorial. In April 2020 we will unite with Kilmallie to become Fort William Kilmallie.
