Welcome to Stow St Mary of Wedale and Heriot Church of Scotland

DianneWe are 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 Stow and Heriot Church and Caddonfoot Church are part of the Presbytery of Lothian and Borders.  

Our aim is to make known God's love in Jesus Christ, throughout our parish and beyond.  Whether you live in the parish, 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 do get in touch. 

  Mrs Dianne Wilson, Session Clerk  

Our minister for the last 12 years, Rev Victoria Linford, has moved on to a new role in the Church of Scotland.  We wish her well in her new form of service within the Church, and we look forward to seeing what lies ahead for us in our parish.  In the meantime we continue to worship and serve our communities.
