The End of the Road

I read with interest the article in the March issue by the Rev Richard Baxter, ‘the end of the road’, in which he mentions Mallaig as his end of the road. Mallaig is within the parish of North West Lochaber, and therefore the presbytery of Lochaber, which also includes Richard’s parish.

The same issue included the letter under the heading ‘Church needs to Change’ from Elaine Hough and Stacey Morrison of Ayr, about their encouraging story of growth but expressing their concern for the future and wondering if the Church is heading for the end of the road unless there are changes.

Here in North West Lochaber parish at the end of the Road to the Isles we hope that as a vacant parish we are not heading for the end of the road.

In 2012 when we were last vacant we wrote a letter to your magazine asking why it was that we were challenged to find a minister in such a beautiful part of the world. Our minister the Rev Edgar Ogston has now retired, was called to us having read that letter. What a step forward that has been for this united parish.
