The United congregation of Bowden & Melrose was formed in 2007 and retains both its two places of worship.
This is a Church of Scotland congregation within the Presbytery of Melrose and Peebles.
A very warm welcome awaits all be it to our 9.30 am Sunday worship in Bowden Kirk or the 11.00 am service in the larger church in Melrose.

The churches website is always subject updating. We are therefore keen to receive news that tell more about the work of the congregation and our activities within the local communities. Much of the work of the parish can be seen in the Parish Profile which was approved by the Kirk Session in 2016 and this profile can be downloaded by following this link.

The website continues to offer all of the essential news and information along with sections on the churches history and past editions of the parish magazine. This data can be accessed via the navigation bar above or the links below.

The current magazine for the summer months is now available to download and view on line.

This current edition is packed with interesting and thought provoking articles. As well as the usual information on church activities and the listing of rotas we would highlight the following.

  • Letter from Rosie Frew
  • Report on the Induction Social and letters of thanks
  • The Pastoral Care Group
  • Treasurer's Report
  • Letter from Honduras

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 form a vital part within the two Communities.
