Going for Growth

A Day with the Church Without Walls Team

Saturday 30th March

At Laggan Village Hall

Drive to Laggan from Spean Bridge by never turning off the A86. Pass the loch. Pass Wolftrax mountain biking. You will come to Laggan just after you have passed the turn-off (on your right) to Dalwhinnie). As you enter Laggan the church is obvious on your right, but you are not going there. When the church is on your right, the village shop is facing you. You turn left, past the shop, and continue for about 100 yards where there is a small car park with recycling bins on your left. Use that. The hall is another 50 yards up the road, a large building on your left, on the corner of the road down to the houses and the school. The door is just around the corner.

Gathering from 10am for 10.30am start

Highland Commissioners’ Gathering May 2019

Last May, a number of commissioners from the Highland Presbyteries met up for a buffet at the Wash Bar on the Monday evening. It was a good networking opportunity.

Do we want to do something similar this year?

As Vice-Convenor of Assembly Arrangements Committee, I will have other evening commitments and may not be able to attend such an event…

Would someone else like to arrange and co-ordinate a gathering this year?

With all good wishes…
