“A substantial, commodious, well built, and not unhandsome building” was the description given to the new church of Yetholm built in 1836 during the Ministry of the Revd. John Baird.
This impressive, turreted structure built of squared blue whinstone pricked out with white cement, is in a style of excellent taste and keeping with its surroundings, affording views of the picturesque Bowmont valley and the Cheviot hills.
It is built on the site of the last thatched church in Scotland, a long low building, thatched with reeds, with the floor below ground level. The site was probably occupied by a parish Church for over 800 years.
Major building work took place in 1933-34, 1973, 2000, 2006, 2012 and 2015.
Yetholm Church has undergone a total internal makeover and now offers flexible open space for worship and hospitality.The light open feel, the stain glass, the wonderful seasonal banners all contribute to a relaxed sense of peace as we worship Sunday by Sunday.
Worship is weekly at 10.00am with wheelchair access and a loop system.
