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 autumn 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.

  • Christian Aid - How is this money spent?
  • Traidcraft - Fighting poverty through trade
  • Border Steet Pastors
  • Zomba Presbytery - young peoples' visit

The Church is fully aware of the new GDPR Data Protection Legislation which came into force on 25th May 2018. The Church of Scotland legal department has suggested to congregations an appropriate approach and policy and as soon as the suggested approach has been customised to our own parish requirements we will be adding this policy statement to our website.

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.

   Bowden & Melrose Parish Church is a Fairtrade congregation.
