Dalbeattie & Kirkgunzeon Parish Church linked with Urr Parish Church

Welcome to our website 

As the Church year moves from the season of Easter into Pentecost, we are reminded of the birth of the Christian Church.

Pentecost is really the birth of the church, when the disciples were gifted with the Holy Spirit, when they found they could communicate with all they met, and were able to pass on the Love of God to all.

Jesus was no longer with them in a physical presence, He was with them in a Spiritual presence now, and he had commanded them to go and preach to the nations.

A daunting thought for these ordinary men, who came from all walks of life. But they followed their instructions and so the Church was born.

Much has changed since those days, they had to travel on foot or by donkey, no phones, no cars, no internet!  How would they mange!

But that is exactly what they did, they preached the love of God to all they met, they encouraged others to live the Christian life and take God into their hearts.

There were no fancy church buildings then and most of the meetings took place in people’s homes. And soon the word spread.

To this day we recognise how our church began, although there have been many changes to worship, to preaching, to prayer and even our approach to God.

Here in Dalbeattie & Kirkgunzeon Parish Church we seek to follow the disciples example, we welcome all who come to us, we share the fellowship and most of we share the great love of God our Father, Jesus the Son and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, to all who enter through our door.

Go in peace, Go in love, and go with the Lord.

Fiona.
