The Reverend Bob Milne

Have your say

The new moderator of Melrose and Peebles presbytery brings a wealth of experience to one of the top church positions in the Borders – for he has done it all before (2004-05).

The Reverend Bob Milne (minister of the parishes of Broughton, Glenholm and Kilbucho, linked with Skirling, linked with Stobo and Drumelzier, linked with Tweedsmuir) has succeeded the Reverend Sheila Moir (minister of Maxton and Mertoun, linked with Newtown, linked with St Boswells) as churches unite to meet the demands of a changing population.

Mr Milne, 62, “received the call from God” after a career in local government and was formerly moderator of the presbytery of Annandale and Eskdale while a minister in Langholm.He is married and has a daughter and son.
