West Tweeddale Parishes 
West Tweeddale Parish Churches are a linkage of six Church of Scotland congregations in the north-west of the Scottish Borders.

Linkage means that our churches share a minister and collaborate on many activities, but each church can pursue its own goals in response to the needs and wishes of its local community.

We are churches of people, not buildings.  In addition to church services, we organise a range of events to attract and interest people irrespective of what they believe, or do not believe.  We welcome everyone to any and all of our events and hope we may see you at some of these soon.

These pages will tell you a lot more about us and what we do, but if you cannot find the answers you're looking for, please contact us.

Your Will Be Done

Come and pray with us for and about the future of Broughton Kirk. We will meet from 7.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. on the first Sunday and the third Thursday of each month at Broughton Village Hall.

The plan is to look at the many ways in which it is possible to pray, focusing on a particular type of prayer each month; to use that prayer in praying for the Holy Spirit to guide us in the way forward for the church in Broughton; and to reflect on our experiences of using different ways of praying.

We begin in April on Sunday 7th and Thursday 18th.
