Places of Worship

Although the four denominations in the Upper Coquetdale Valley are independent, they are brought together through Upper Coquetdale Churches Together (UCCT) which holds regular joint acts of worship and produces a community magazine called Over The Bridges 10 times a year. They also have a presence at the village shows in the valley and organise their own special events.

The four denominations and their churches in the valley are shown in the side column, and their locations are on the map.
