Music and Worship

We have two differently tuned bells at the west end of the church and a large single bell to the side of the nave, used during services. If you would like the bells rung at your wedding please discuss this with us in advance as part of your planning.

St Aidans is home to the Border Concert Band who practice in the church and give concerts. We have comfortable seating on individual chairs rather than pews and can seat 300. The acoustics are excellent plus we have a good upright piano to accompany singing.

We have a two manual Harrison and Harrison tracker action pipe organ, which although in need of repair to some stops is still able to produce some magnificent sounds.

Groups, Courses and Activities


We serve tea and coffee at the back of church after the Sunday morning service. It’s a chance to talk and get to know each other so please stay and chat.
