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.  The "linked charge" currently has no full time Minister, and is under the care of an Interim Moderator.

Coffee Morning and Sales Tables Success!!

On Saturday 18th December, Bengairn Parishes held a Coffee Morning in the Castle Douglas Parish Church Hall, with a number of Home Produce and Crafts tables.  This raised a wonderful total of £660 for church funds, and a supplementary sale at Kelton Church on the following day brought the overall total to £740!!

The organisers would like to thank all those who so kindly contributed to,and supported, the event(s) - a lot of hard work was involved, but the end result more than rewarded the efforts.

New Parish Profile!

Now that Castle Douglas and Bengairn Parishes have been given the green light to invite applications for the Vacant Linked Charge, the first steps have been taken, with the crafting of a new Parish Profile, which is available to potential applicants in a variety of publications and adverts.

The joint Nominating Committee has done a truly excellent job in crafting a comprehensive (and accurate) overview of the Charge - hopefully this will encourage interest, enquiries and..........applications!
