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




We are holding an informal gathering in the Church Hall on Tuesday 1st May at 2.00 pm and 7.00 pm.

Through displays and short presentations, we will have an opportunity to consider the importance of the work of our church, and how we can be supportive and effective in our giving for its future.

There will also be an opportunity to enjoy refeshments together.

Invitations are being distributed between 11th and 21st April and the RSVPs can be returned to your visitor/elder, the Church or McKenzie's shop on the High Street.

Building Together Prayer

Generous God, all that we are and all that we have comes from you.   Forgive us the times when we have been less than generous in what we have said, in what we have done, in the ways we have given our money and ourselves.   Help us to give gladly and generously to you for the work of your Church, in our community, in our country and throughout the world.   May your kingdom come.   May your will be done.   

Through our stewardship programme Building Together encourage generous spirits and generous actions in each of us here, that our giving may enable the sharing of the gospel through the worship, fellowship, mission and service of the Church.  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



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.
