The Future of the Parish Church

The future of the Parish Church is once again a subject for community discussion.  In a statement from Fiona Ogg, the minister to the joint parishes of Acharacle and Ardnamurchan, Fiona reports that those responsible for the church, which includes the Kirk Session, the Lochaber Presbytery and the General Trustees of the Church of Scotland, have now concluded that the structural problems are such that, even if enough money could be raised to carry out all the repairs in the short term, "in the long term, the day-to-day running costs of maintaining the building and ministry are in excess of income."

Fiona's full statement can be read on the West Ardnamurchan News, here.
