Kilmonivaig has a communicant’s roll of 51 with 31 adherents. There is normally a service each Sunday at 9.30a.m., attended by about 30 adults. There is a Sunday school during term time with around 8 children on the register. Additional services are held on Christmas Eve and Good Friday, with occasional afternoon services for those who find our early start difficult. A small team prepares PowerPoint and projects the hymn words each week to assist the delivery of worship. Three organists lead the praise, in rotation, and we sing a range of traditional and contemporary songs, mostly from CH4 and Mission Praise. A large print handout of the hymns is prepared for those who suffer from a visual impairment. An intimation sheet is printed off for all who attend.
At present our linked congregation of Fort William: Duncansburgh MacIntosh is in the process of uniting with the neighbouring congregation of Kilmallie to form Fort William Kilmallie, and we will be linked with them. The aim is to create a hub with four places of worship and a team with at least two full-time staff to work across the whole area. This exciting development has unfortunately had to be put on hold until the current coronavirus pandemic subsides.
A Bible Study group has been going for many years and currently is held on Thursday mornings in the church hall at 10.30a.m. [currently suspended due to coronavirus]. There is an active Guild which meets monthly over the winter and has a good variety of speakers. The church increased its eldership from 6 to 13 in 2019, and the larger team is working well together. A leaflet of historical information for visitors is available in the church.
The Commando Association organises an open air service of remembrance at the Commando memorial at 3.00p.m. on the afternoon of Remembrance Sunday at which the parish minister is usually invited to officiate. A large crowd of over 200 usually attend.
