Linked Parishes Profile

DSC_0988Hobkirk & Southdean parish linked with the Union of Ruberslaw – combining Bedrule, Denholm and Minto churches – in 2002.  The two parishes share the same minister, the Rev. Douglas Nicol, who lives in the manse in Denholm. There is a close relationship between the two parishes, and on at least one Sunday each year one service only is held, alternating between the two.

Please use ‘The Churches’ link above for more information on the churches in the two parishes.  H&SwithR_collageThere are five beautiful buildings within the linked charge, with four in regular use; all are in excellent order and fortunately we are well endowed.  We have enthusiastic Kirk Sessions and buoyant membership, most of whom belong to other organisations within the parishes.  We hope that you will be able to join us sometime, and perhaps become “well kent” members of these traditional rural communities.
