Welcome to our website 

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 acitivies.

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



Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson

The Church serves the local community and provides a focus for doing God's work.

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



Urr is a beautiful rural church, adjacent to the village of Haugh of Urr, in the valley of the River Urr.  There has been a church on this site since 1606.  The present building was opened in 1915 and through its history has been the centre of Christian service to the local community.
