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.

Zooming Back into Lockdown 2......

Following the ScotGov announcements yesterday (4th January), places of worship are to close with effect from Friday 8th January.  The Bengairn Parishes "deep-cleaning squad" will be taking the necessary steps for a (hopefully) relatively short shut-down to comply with the ruling.

However, all is not lost!  Alison has resumed the weekly Zoom Service (1100 each Sunday morning) - this proved to be a real boon through Lockdown 1, and all are most welcome to attend.  If you would like to join that worship, please contact Alison, or your Elder, so that you may receive the necessary 'joining info'.
