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.

Au Revoir Christopher and Erin!!

Our service on Sunday (8th May) gave us a great opportunity to say a huge thank you to Christopher for his eclectic mix of inspiration, humour and warmth as he has so ably participated in all aspects of Bengairn Parishes' life as part of his journey towards becoming a Minister.  His last service was a defining moment, and it was lovely that Erin was there as well.  We're taking bets that it won't be the last time we'll be able to welcome them to one of our services, and we all wish them every happiness in their soon to be wedding!
