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.

Reflection for the Week

As we reach the end of March and on towards what hopefully will be an improving Spring (in every way), Alison has very thoughtfully produced a timely Bible reading for us all to watch and listen to.

The video can be found on the Castle Douglas Parish Church facebook page
