COVID-19 News, Reflections and Support Information
All church services in both Bowden Kirk and Melrose Parish Church have been cancelled as of 16th March for the
foreseeable future. Additionally all church meetings and events are also cancelled.
During this time we have to find new ways of keeping in touch, supporting one another, and being good neighbours.
