In January 2007 the congregations of Melrose Parish and Bowden Parish were united to form Bowden & Melrose Congregation. This is now a congregation with two places of worship under the Ministry of Rev A G Bennett who was formally the minister in Melrose.
This is a Church of Scotland congregation and offers a welcome to all its members, visitors and those new to either of the two communities, or indeed from outwith the Parish boundary.

Sunday services are held at Bowden Church at 9.30 AM and at Melrose Church at 11.00 AM.

Although the churches website is always subject to review and updating we 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 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.

  • The Session Clerk's letter - The farewell service and buffet lunch to mark Alistair's long service as Minister
  • Congregational support for the Ballater Floods
  • New Youth Club in Melrose

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 forms a vital part of the two Communities.
