Welcome to ALE & TEVIOT UNITED CHURCHWe are pleased to have you with us!
Ale & Teviot United Church is what’s called the “parish church” for our area. That’s important, because it means that we’re not just a cosy wee club, providing services to existing members, but instead that we’re committed to reach out in compassion and fellowship to everyone, of every age, living in our area, and to share with you the Good News of a Saviour who loves you unconditionally.
Although this is a short note, it does carry some important information.
Nominating Committee. This is the group of people who are charged with finding a new minister. The Committee is up and running and looking at ways to contact possible ministers and promote the congregations. There is a great deal of work involved in this and much of it will go on quietly in the background. Please do not ask members of the committee for information. The process has to be carried out with total confidentiality and it will just embarass committee members if they have to tell you – politely – to mind your own business. When there is any news the congregation will be the first to hear about it.

Congratulations! We are always delighted when a man and a woman make the quality decision to seek Christian marriage, and we wish you every blessing on your future together as husband and wife.
At this sad and difficult time, please be assured of the love and support of your local parish church. Our pastoral care is freely available to you, whether or not you or your loved one have any connection with the church.
Ale and Teviot United Church is situated in the Scottish Borders a short distance North of the town of Jedburgh. The extended parish combines the original parishes of Eckford, Crailing, Nisbet, Ancrum and Lilliesleaf.
These are typical Borders rural communities, set in lovely surroundings along the River Teviot to the east and the Ale Water to the west.

We say “goodbye” to Rev Dr Warren Beattie and his wife, Stroma, with mixed feelings. Warren has been our Locum minister for the past 6 months or so. His last Sunday with us is on 3rd February. Later in the month he takes up his new Charge in the Black Isle. There he will be the minister of Avoch, Fortrose and Rosemarkie. We wish them both every blessing in their new home.
Thank you both for your faithful and supportive service to Ale and Teviot. We received excellent teaching and the encouragement to continue supporting our church will help us as we search for a new minister . The pastoral work done in the communities and the links built with the two primary schools are particularly valued.
