Past Events

Nether Lochaber Church Hall

The Church Hall has undergone a major renovation. The old entrance porch was demolished. A ramp suitable for the disabled has been provided to the entrance with a new emergency exit at the back of the building.

The end of the building which housed the kitchen and toilets was demolished and rebuilt to modern standards including a toilet for the disabled. The windows were replaced with double glazed units and insulated lining was inserted on the inside of the exterior walls which has drastically reduced the heating bill.

Concerned about the young people in the town, they realised that the young people wouldn't come to Church so the Church went out to meet them. Read the inspiring approach as a download at the foot of this page.

General News

Stamps –  They seem to be so insignificant and yet when they’re all put together, what wonderful outcomes there can be.  Perhaps a lesson for ourselves!  So please don’t throw away your used stamps.  Bring them to church and they will be sent off to the World Mission Stamp Appeal.

They’ve been in use since the 1840’s and nowadays stamps can be used to raise money for good causes.  At the Nether Lochaber Parish Church we collect used stamps to send to the World Mission Stamp Appeal.

In 2015, £3511 was raised to support the work of the Church of Scotland’s HIV programme and the Appeal which started in 2016 is raising money for the Othara Eco-spirituality centre run by our partner, the Church of South India.  At this centre people can learn about climate change and the importance of conserving the earth God has given us.  This year, the Stamp Project will support some of their ecological innovations, including the harvesting and re-use of rain water, the establishment of a biogas plant to power the kitchens and the development of a small dairy and a chicken farm for native breeds.
