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.

Candle-lit Service - if you missed it......... missed a wonderful hour of carols, readings and fellowship |(plus the best mince pies you'd have tasted this year!).

Many thanks to Alison for leading us in a lovely service, very much enhanced by (safe and reliable) candle light.

Hopefully we can have a repeat next Advent, but in the meantime here's a picture to enjoy!



Christmas present Gift Service - huge THANKS!

Bengairn Parishes' members and friends 'went the extra mile' on Sunday, bringing a welter of lovely gifts to Auchencairn Church, in response to our request for Christmas gifts for children in our community who, through circumstance, are unlikely to receive much at this festive time of year.

All these gifts will be passed on to the Social Work Dept., to whom we are indebted for its hard work to spread a little happiness on our behalf.

Many many thanks to all of those who were able and willing to help.
