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.

Christmas Sales Table 2016

The ever popular Christmas Sales Table will be in Kelton Church Hall, on Sunday 4th December, after the morning service.

The Church Hall will be open on Saturday 3rd December, between 1000 and 1200, when items may be handed in - any non-perishable items may also be brought to church on any Sunday before 4th December, where a box will be provided. 

Flower Festival!! Pictures and Calendar Opportunity!

The "Sharing our Talents" Flower Festival at Auchencairn Church took place on 10th and 11th September, and we had a good number of visitors, both for the wonderful displays in the church, and for the equally wonderful Teas and Crafts at the Murray Hall. 

If you like these pictures - and want to see more - then there may be an opportunity to purchase a 2017 Calendar, to be able to enjoy month by month the very best of the "Talents" that were on display that weekend.  Calendars are priced at a very reasonable £5.00, with all proceeds going to church funds.  Please contact Rosemary Gladstone for more information (01557 330158; - although this truly is "the gift that keeps on giving", if you want a calendar in time for Christmas, the latest date for ordering is Monday 12th December.
