Hi there, and welcome to the website for Hawick: Burnfoot Church.  We hope you might find something useful here, that enables you to be encouraged.

We are entering new days here, for I am about to leave and take up another set of congregations in another part of Scotland.  I shall be leaving towards the end of June.  

I have been here for 22 years and have been delighted to participate in what has gone here.  Together we have seen some great highs and some lows, have seen people come to faith, and people move on in faith too.  There has been the development of new ministry opportunities and I have been privileged enough to be able to work alongside several community agencies and organisations during that time.  

New things.  For me to go to another part of Scotland, and for the congregation here to find a new way to minister while they do not have a minister in the short term and immediate future.  Whatever happens long term that will be new too - a new minister or a shared ministry.

The church in Burnfoot are the many people who live here who have faith.  The church, therefore, is still able to be a support, an encouragement, a resource for children and young peoples activities, and the provider of a place of worship for all who would like to do that locally.

Newness is a constant running theme through the expression of Christian faith, and it would not be hard to find that “new” thing in the days and weeks and months, if not years, which lie ahead.
