Since 1st January 2024, we are the new Lammermuir Parish Church, formed through the union of the formerly linked parishes of Humbie and of Yester Bolton and Saltoun Church.
Bolton and Saltoun had been linked in the early days of the Reformation but then separated. In 1929 the two parishes again joined together under one minister, this time as a union. In 1979 the Bolton & Saltoun congregation linked with those of Yester and Humbie.
Then, in 2015, Yester Bolton & Saltoun formed a union, linked with Humbie.
Over 1400 years ago St Cuthbert was sent out from Lindisfarne as a missionary monk to the hill villages of the Lammermuirs, visiting "villages which were remotely situated among steep and rugged hills, places others feared to visit". St Cuthbert would surely be gratified to know that his daring journey has led to such a long tradition of Christian worship in those 'dangerous' villages.
