Jar of Grace for Lent
The Bishop of Edinburgh’s Lent Appeal this year is for Mercy Ships UK and Fresh Start Borders (which offers practical help to those moving from homelessness into housing). Please put a jam jar in your kitchen and every time you eat a meal put a coin or note in the jar as a thanks offering during Lent.

What people say....
"My friend and I went to the 10am Holy Communion on Sunday 10 March 2019. We were on holiday and wanted to attend an Episcopalian Church. The service was delightful. I suspect that the congregation all knew each other but there was no sense of being outsiders. Both officiating clergy made a point of welcoming us and used our names during the sharing of the bread and wine. The sermon was thought-provoking with a smidgeon of humour to leaven the message. The hymns were traditional which we tend to prefer. The church building (Victorian) is also worth seeing with some attractive decoration and windows. We were on holiday but were we to live in Kelso, I don't think we would seek further for a regular Place of Worship"
