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.

Nativity Service Christmas Eve 2016

Families from across Bengairn Parishes - and beyond - enjoyed a memorable Nativity Service at Kelton Church on the afternoon of Christmas Eve.  Under the wonderfully imaginative 'artistic direction' and guidance of Oonagh Dee, an impressive array of role-players (young and not so young) built up a colourful tableau on the ''stage'' as the nativity story unfolded.

Many many thanks to all who came along - it wouldn't be a surprise if this was repeated in years to come!


Christmas Sales Table 2016

The Bengairn Parishes Christmas Sales Table was "on display" at both Auchencairn and Kelton churches over the period, and a marvellous total of £350 was raised for Church funds.  The organisers want to thank all those who contributed to the success of the 'event' either with donating craft and other items for sale, or through making purchases!
