services

Sunday morning services are normally held at 9.30am in Selkirk, and 11.30am in Kirkhope (Ettrickbridge) or Yarrow.

Ashkirk Parish Church will not be holding services from the 6th November 2022 until the end of February 2023.  However, the church will be open each Sunday from 11.45 until 12.30 for private prayer and meditation. Please contact Fan Heafield on 07827927715 for any further information.

There is also a shorter service each Wednesday morning (average attendance 10) in the church hall at 11am.

A group meets for prayer on zoom at 7pm every Wednesday.

Tea and coffee are served after both Sunday and Wednesday services.

Hymns and songs combine different traditions, with traditional hymns and more contemporary worship songs, usually organ or piano led, but supplemented with other music ensembles from time to time. All the words are projected for easy reading. Services are relaxed but structured, with responsive prayers and readings, and members of the congregation are encouraged to take part. The service is recorded on video and uploaded to our YouTube channel for housebound members.

Communion Services are currently held 6 times per year, with other special services throughout the year.

Parents with very young children can choose to sit in the “meeting house”, a glassed-off area to the rear of the church, and still feel part of the service.

Every two months, a group of members assist with the service at the Borders General Hospital Chaplaincy Centre.
