Welcome to Oxnam Kirk Website

Oxnam is a small rural parish with a simple 17th century church which sits on a hill overlooking the surrounding farmland. Normal attendance at worship is between 20 and 35 and up to 150 for special events. Visitors are always welcome.

All services start at 10.30 a.m. unless otherwise stated.

The church is a registered charity and, as such, is now registered on the “Just Giving” website. Please go there if you would like to contribute in this way.

Following government advice, the Church remains closed.  Rev. Marion Dodd will continue to offer pastoral care by telephone or email only as we are not permitted to make home visits at this time.  Marion can be contacted by email at mariondodd@btinternet.com and by telephone on 01896 822446.  In addition Church members and members of the community can contact any of the Elders known to them for support.
If needed, Rev. Sandy Young from Kelso will carry out funerals within the parish for the foreseeable future.  Sandy can be contacted on sandy.young45@yahoo.com or 01573 348749.  Please note that currently funerals can only be attended by immediate family members such as spouse, siblings and parents but not their partners and no colleagues or friends.  However distressing this is, it is for the safety of all concerned.  Social distancing must be observed at all times, so people must stay at least 2 meters apart unless they are from the same household.  Funerals cannot take place in the Church at this time so will be held either in a funeral parlour or at the cemetery.  We would hope that in time we will be able to hold memorial services which can be attended by all of the community.

Marion’s  Sunday Messages can be viewed on Facebook and the script found here under ‘The Kirk’ then  ‘Marion’s Blogs’ 

You are now also able to listen to Marion’s message by ringing: 01835 555457.  After a short welcome message, you will hear this Sunday’s message.   It costs the same as a local call, although it’s a bit more expensive from a mobile.
