Welcome to our website 

Message from the Minister:

Each Sunday we come together to worship God, learn about His love shown through Jesus, seek His strength for whatever we face in our daily lives and grow in faith.

During the week many Church members serve their neighbours and communities in a variety of ways - in Church activities, at work, at home or through charity-work.

You are welcome to join us at any of our regular Sunday Services or mid-week activities.

May we share the Peace, Joy and Love that God gave to us with all that we meet.

Your minister,



Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson

Building Together Prayer

Generous God, giver of life and love, you have lavished so much on us to enrich our lives.   We are your disciples here.   Your word has been placed on our lips and your work has been placed in our hands, that the good news of your love may be known in this place, throughout Scotland, and all over the world.   Empowered by your Spirit and working together with enthusiasm and commitment, we can fulfil the task you have given us.   Bless our gatherings – our talking, our listening and our reflecting.   Open our minds and our hearts to your call to give.   Help us all to respond to you with love, with generosity, with joyful commitment to your service.    Amen

Kirkgunzeon Church is a lovely little Church and sits in the middle of the village.  In October the decision was made to close Kirkgunzeon Church and unite with Dalbeattie Church where the services are now held.

Where the present building stands has been a sacred place dating back to around 1100s.   If you are interested in the history click here
