Am I Really Welcome at this Table?
On Tuesday 3rd September the first monthly meeting of Melrose and Peebles Presbytery was held at Broughton Church. It is tradition that this first meeting is held at the home church of the moderator and it is always preceded by a service provided by the local church. This service was organised by the Worship Workshop and included two dramatic presentations highlighting the role of the committee in the history of the church and the importance of being a church that is inclusive and open to change.

The video shown here is of a feature titled "Am I Really Welcome at this Table?" written and presented by the members of the Worship Workshop. You can see more of the service here:

Fiona Burnett Installed as Presbytery Moderator
On Tuesday 25th June at Trinity Church in Galashiels, Fiona Burnett, an elder at Broughton Kirk, was installed as the new moderator of Melrose and Peebles Presbytery. She replaces Rev. Julie Rennick, minister of Earlston Kirk.

In her introduction Julie reflected on the joy of their time spent working together during the last year both during the visit of the young people from Lebanon and Malawi last August and during the trip to Lebanon two months ago. Fiona thanked Julie for all of her hard work during the year and pointed out that Julie's ability to chair meetings effortlessly and to say the right things at the right times made her a very hard act to follow.
