Kirkurd and Newlands Parish Church of Scotland

Romanno Bridge, West Linton, EH46 7BZ

Welcome to our Church

We offer a very warm welcome to everyone who wants to join us at our services or at other events. We hold services every Sunday at 10 a.m. They last for about 45 minutes and are followed by coffee and tea. Children of all ages are welcome and we normally run a Sunday School (which we call Adventurers) during the service, in our Annex.

Our Parish

Kirkurd and Newlands Parish Church serves the communities of Lamancha, Newlands and Kirkurd in the Scottish Borders. We always welcome residents from the Castlecraig Rehabilitation Centre to join our services.  We are part of a linked charge, with Carlops and St Andrews, West Linton. The three Churches share a minister.


Calendar 2018

The first record of any church at Newlands was exactly 700 years ago in 1317 when John Graham, the Duke of Dalkeith gave the church to the monks at Dunfermline Abbey.  Since then there have been a number of significant events, including the subsequent building of the old church which then burnt down in a fire in 1795.  The current church was completed in 1838 and then refurbished in 2004.

We have a competition at Newlands Primary School to design a special anniversary card.  We are getting a new commemorative bench outside the church and will be holding a Harvest Festival Flower Show at the end of September.
