In January 2007 the congregations of Melrose Parish and Bowden Parish were united to form Bowden & Melrose Congregation. This is now a congregation with two places of worship under the Ministry of Rev A G Bennett who was formally the minister in Melrose.
This is a Church of Scotland congregation and offers a welcome to all its members, visitors and those new to either of the two communities, or indeed from outwith the Parish boundary.

Sunday services are held at Bowden Church at 9.30 AM and at Melrose Church at 11.00 AM.

Holy Week services are now past but many members and indeed visitors will remember with fondness both the ecumenical services in the earlier part of the week and the Sunday Service held at 8.00 am on the Eildon Hills. Click on this link to see and hear more regarding this new Easter service.

The original website for the church was outdated and this new look website is now active but still undergoing further development. While this development is taking place the detail on the site is restricted and not all the links are currently functioning. We are however offering most of the essential data using elements of the navigation bar or the links below.

Within the current magazine there are a number of interesting articles and we would particularly draw members and friends attention to the following topic :-
  • Christian Aid 2014 - A World of Conflict
  • Church of Scotland Social Care Council
  • Easter Sunday - On the Eildons

Alongside the two churches the town of Melrose has the Roman Catholic High Cross Church, and the Scottish Episcopal Church of Holy Trinity.

The Parish Church endeavours to provide a service to all the community, both member and non-member alike. The buildings are in almost daily use by the people of Melrose and in the following pages we provide information on the many ways in which the Parish Churches forms a vital part of the two Communities.
