- Earlston Parish Church
- TD4 6DE
Earlston Parish Church has occupied a prominent place in the village for many generations, probably at least as far back as the twelfth century. Today its fine Victorian architecture dominates the East End of Earlston, and its comfortable interior welcomes a great diversity of worshippers. Please come and join us, and enjoy your welcome afterwards with a cup of tea or coffee – you’ll find it hard to get away.
Morning worship is normally offered every Sunday at 10:15 (except on special occasions), with Holy Communion ten times a year. There are also occasional weekday services.
GOOD NEWS- The church have been busy putting all the guidelines in place and have been given permission to re-open our church. We held our first service in the church on Sunday 25th October at 10.15am and this short service was conducted by our Interim Moderator, Rev Marion Dodd.
Those wishing to attend are requested to register by calling 01896 849669. Those attending will be expected to:
1. Wear a Face covering at all times
2. Follow the guidance of the church officers on duty
3. Bring own drinking water if required

We do not currently hold a regular Sunday School; children are always welcome to any service, there is a good selection of resources available in the dedicated area at the front of the sanctuary. Special provision has been made for wheelchairs in the body of the church.
Above all, there are few aspects of village life in which Earlston Parish Church doesn’t play a prominent part. The quarterly Church & Community Magazine is distributed to every household in the parish, and contains news from many village organisations (select the About Us tab, and then Magazine). The annual service to celebrate the commencement of Civic Week has even taken place in the festive marquee in previous years.
Spring Magazine available here.
We invite you to come and see for yourself!
