The Parish Profile which was approved by the Kirk Session and was the guiding document in the work of the Nomination Committee can still be viewed and downloaded by following this link.

Although the churches website is always subject to review and updating we are keen to see further developments that tell more about the work of the congregation and our activities within the local communities. 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 spring months and Easter 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 the Interim Moderator
  • Ewan Rintoul's retirement as Session Clerk
  • Lent 2017
  • Induction social

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.
