- 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 worshipers. 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.
The Physical Distance-Based Capacity Limit (PDBC)in our church is 88
Sunday 1st August, the service in the church at 10.15 am will be conducted by Dr John Burns.
As our capacity in church has increased there is no longer a need to Pre-register, however, you will still have to give your name and contact number when you arrive at church for the Test and Protect regulations. Face coverings must be worn at all times and follow the guidance of the Covid Officers on duty please. We are now allowed to sing in church with face coverings on.
There will be no recording of the services for the foreseeable future.

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!
