Welcome to the website of Victoria LinfordStow St Mary of Wedale and Heriot Church of Scotland.


This is a small, rural parish consisting of the villages of Stow, Fountainhall and Heriot and associated farming lands.  We are linked with our neighbouring parish of Caddonfoot, and both Caddonfoot Church and Stow and Heriot Church are part of the Presbytery of Melrose and Peebles. 


Our aim is to make known God's love in Jesus Christ, throughout our parish and beyond.


Whether you live in the parish, or are visiting on holiday, or would simply like to find out more about our church, we hope you enjoy these pages and will come and see us.  

If you have any questions, please do get in touch.
