Yetholm church was packed on the afternoon of 22nd September for the celebration of Margaret Smailes' 90th birthday - shown above, with the Rev Colin Johnston. Margaret has been a loyal and cheerful member of out community for many years and the kirk was filled with well-wishers. Margaret has found it difficult to get to church in recent years and it was great to see her with us again on Sunday.
Morebattlebattle church was packed on the evening of Friday when the Rev Colin Johnston was ordained as minister of Cheviot Churches. Having spent most of his life working abroad Colin is looking forward to getting reacquainted with his native country - hopefully he won't find us too weird!
