Welcome to the website of the Parishes of Upper Tweeddale.   The charge is made up of the four linked Parishes of Broughton, Glenholm and Kilbucho; Skirling; Stobo and Drumelzier; and Tweedsmuir.   The villages, the churches and their congregations are all quite distinct but despite, or possibly because of this they are in harmony with one another.

Our minister is the The Rev. Bob Milne 
There is public worship in all four churches every week:

Broughton Kirk at 10am
Tweedsmuir Kirk at 10am
Skirling Kirk at 11.30am
Stobo Kirk at 11.30am

 the sun did shine - we sold out of ice-cream lots of people turned up and we raised £870 for Christian Aid....thank you thank you for everyone who helped and everyone who came along to make it a success

Build a House for Nepal: We can now report that we have collected just over £2,000, enough to build 2 houses, and with gift aid well on the way to a third. Many thanks to all who contributed by filling smart tubes with 20 pence pieces.   There should now be a bit more small change circulating in Upper Tweeddale!
