Family Services

As with so many churches the attendance of children and youth is a challenge with so many other competing activites happening on a Sunday.
To address this challenge the congregation holds monthly Family services at 10.00 am in the Melrose Church Hall geared to children and their family, be it parents, grandparents or friends. In addition there are two special and well attended family services, these being the Christingle service held in the Melrose Church on Christmas Eve and the Easter Morning service conducted early morning on the Eildon Hills

Forthcoming services to put in the diary:

  • Sunday 4th March - 10.00 to the Melrose Parish Church Hall
    "That's not Fair!" based around the Fairtrade movement.
  • Sunday 18th March - 3.00 to the Melrose Parish Church Hall
    Messy Church
  • Sunday 4th March - 7.30a.m. on the Eildon Hill Saddle
    Early morning Easter Worship
  • Sunday 6th May - 10.00 to 10.30a.m. in the Melrose Parish Church Hall
    "Build a Home of Hope"
These services are fun and informal and a warm welcome is extended to all. Watch this space for the themes of future services.

Messy Church is a way of being and doing church for families based on creativity, hospitality and celebration. The first event was a Christmas Celebration held on Sunday 17 December between 3.00-5.00pm in Melrose Parish Church Hall at which Games, Crafts, Stories, Singing, Food, and Fun were all enjoyed.
The next Messy Church is themed around Easter and will take place on Sunday 18th March between 3.00 and 5.00 pm in the church hall.
The third Messy Church is to be held on the 13th May again between 3.00 and 5.00 pm.
As with the Christmas Messy Church we need people to make this happen. People to help with food, crafts, games, singing and stories….Interested, then please contact Rosie. For more information on Messy Church go to
