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.

Prayers for Sri Lanka

Following the terrible bombings in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday, Alison has been in contact with the Session Clerk at St. Andrew's Church of Scotland in Sri Lanka, also with the Sri Lankan Presbytery, in order to offer our love and prayers for all those affected.

At the Bengairn Parishes' morning service on Sunday 28th April, all those in attendance wrote individual prayers and thoughts, which were affixed to a cross at the Communion Table.
