Church Community Questionnaire
The church families at Cockpen & Carrington Parish Church linked with Lasswade & Rosewell Parish Church are seeking to offer a more relevant presence of church in the local area. To help us develop towards that, we would be very grateful if you could take a few moments to fill in a questionnaire. Please click here for the questionnaire
