The Parish Church at Kelton

The Bengairn Parishes are set in the beautiful countryside of the Stewartry of Kirkcudbright in South-west Scotland.  The parishes are characterised by farming and land use in general and are closely associated with the market town of Castle Douglas.  Kelton church is set in attractive rural surroundings where services are regularly held.  The church has an Induction Loop System installed for hearing enhancement and has a busy church hall adjacent to the church building. Auchencairn church is in the village of Auchencairn, which has a school and shop/Post office. The manse for the  united charge is at the rear of the church in Auchencairn and is currently let on a short-term tenancy.

Bengairn Parishes is linked with Castle Douglas Parish Church. 

Reverend Alison Burnside is the Minister for the linked charge.

A Journey through time, Sorbie to Buittle and beyond!

If you're at all familiar with the adventures of John Buchan's fictional Richard Hannay across Galloway, here is a fascinating glimpse of an historical journey involving the actual Clan Hanna (or Hannay), and many other names with  Galloway roots, beautifully presented by Alison Burnside.

This is an insight into how past events and people shaped the present, and well worth spending a few minutes to watch - it should appeal to both young and old!  Once travel restrictions are eased, a sunny day drive to Sorbie sounds a must!
