Tyne Valley Parish

On 2nd September 2010 the three churches of Cranstoun, Fala and Borthwick became one Parish - so although we are separate congregations who worship in separate buildings, we work together as one in Christ.

Borthwick Church serves Middleton Village, Borthwick, part of Gorebridge and the surrounding area. The church incorporates 12th and 15th century features and stands close by Borthwick Castle. A warm welcome awaits you on Sundays from this small friendly congregation. Sadly, our use of Borthwick Church is severly restricted at the present time due to structuural isues. However, we do meet in North Middleton Village Hall. Warm and welcoming.
Cranstoun Church covers the larger area of Pathhead and district. The church stands in the grounds of Oxenfoord Castle on the A68 North of Pathhead and draws its membership from a wide cross-section of the local population and as a result services at Cranstoun combine the best of old and new traditions and music. Come and enjoy!
Fala Church serves the surrounding area and this charming rural church is set on a hill in the village of Fala. It traces its history back to the 12th Century. This small but faithful congregation is very active in the life of the village.

  We are three congregations who, under God, are seeking to build a Christ-centred Church -

1. To worship and glorify God in praise and prayer, trusting in Jesus Christ and depending on the Holy Spirit.

2. To learn and develop together, listening to God, using our gifts and living in humble obedience to Jesus Christ.

3. To value, support and encourage one another in honest forgiving love.

 4. To proclaim the love of God, telling people about Jesus and actively caring for all in need.
