The Presbytery of Melrose and Peebles, located in a part of the Scottish Borders, is made up of 11 charges covering 22 congregations that worship within 34 churches. Organisational change has taken place over the past year, which has changed the nature of some of the current congregational arrangements. The Presbytery will become part of the new Presbytery of Lothian and Borders in January 2023, joining with the neighbouring Presbyteries of Duns, Jedburgh and Lothian. The Church of Scotland General Assembly in May 2022 approved this merger of the Presbyteries.
The Presbytery predominantly serves rural congregations while also having two more substantial communities in the towns 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 Borders Railway.
The Presbytery is the largest of the three Scottish Border Presbyteries, with the Presbyteries of Duns to its east and Jedburgh to its south.
