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.

This page provides current reflections, prayers and helpful resources for our members and the wider community. This can be in the form of downloadable text, audio clips or video. There are also links below to older on-line material split between the Minister's Reflections and the Messy Church Powerpoints and Activities.
