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 winter months is now available to
download and view on line.
This current edition is full of interesting and thought provoking articles.
As well as the usual information on church activities and the listing of rotas we would highlight the following.
- Congregation's new Elders
- Presbytery Planning Task Group
- Christingle Instructions
- Lindisfarne Archaeology Excavation
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.
