Welcome to the web site of
Fort William: Kilmallie Church of Scotland
We are now open for in-person worship in all our buildings. Social distancing is no longer required, and there are no building capacity limits other than what each space will safely hold, so feel free to find your own safe distance. Contact tracing and mask wearing is still in place. We hope many more people will feel able to share in our in-person worship on this basis. For those who prefer a quieter service with plenty of space we recommend the Thursday lunchtime service.
Regular weekly services are as follows
Sun 10.00a.m. Caol
Sun 11.30a.m. Duncansburgh
There is also a weekly 9.30a.m. service each Sunday in our linked congregation of Kilmonivaig.
Thursday lunchtime service 12.15p.m. Duncansburgh
Worship for 26th September - When faith encounters life
Worship for 19th September 2021 - Less childish, more childlike

Our Sunday Worship (after restrictions are lifted)
Timings for Sunday morning services are at the top of the page. Age appropriate activities for children and young people take place during the morning service and everyone is encouraged to stay behind after each service to chat over a cup of tea/coffee. This will resume after current restrictions are eased.
In the evening there is a service at 6.30pm in the MacIntosh hall at the rear of the Church (See Forthcoming services for the programme) We also have Messy Church on the fourth Sunday of the month at 3.00p.m. and recently started a series called Planny Praise in Plantation Hall on the third Sunday of each month at 6.30p.m. (We will give notice when we are able to restart Messy Church and Planny Praise)
