In January 2016 Archbishop Cushley invited our parish to Galashiels to a Cluster Meeting of Neighbouring Border Parishes. At the meeting he outlined the problems facing the diocese in coming years and instructed each parish to participate in three cluster meetings. The frame work for these meetings is contained in the publication Cluster Parishes Together.

THE MAIN TOPICS UNDER DISCUSSION ARE:
– Where do you see signs of spiritual vibrancy in your cluster parishes and how could these be strengthened?
– Where do you see signs of physical vibrancy in terms of such things as finances and buildings?
– What pastoral provision could be shared among your cluster parishes and what, in your considered opinion, would need to remain a single parish provision?
