The Presbytery of Melrose and Peebles, located in a part of the Scottish Borders is made up of 14 charges covering
18 congregations that worship within 22 churches.
The Presbytery is predominantly serving rural congregations while also having two more substantial
communities of Peebles and Galashiels. This is also an area of housing growth resulting from the linking of some parts of the
presbytery to Edinburgh with the new Border Railway.
The Presbytery is the largest of three Scottish Border Presbyteries, with Duns Presbytery to its east and Jedburgh
Presbytery to its south.
