Hello and welcome to our church website,

There is always a very warm welcome in our church, whether a regular attender, an occasional attender or a visitor, the welcome is there for all.

As we move into Autumn we will embrace the changes we have had to make to enable us to worship, but the one thing we will never change is the welcome given to all who enter our doors, and the fellowship we share.

If you haven’t visited us please feel free to do so and enjoy the peace held within our sanctuary and the presence of Our Lord. We look forward to meeting you all.

Rev Fiona Wilson

Changes to Church Services

With the arrival of vaccinations and with an easing of restrictions we are starting to return to something approaching normal, although there are still some strange rules, such as the wearing of masks during services, which mean we are still a considerable way from “normality”.

We are obviously not raising as much as money as we normally would have over the last eighteen months and we are losing money on a monthly basis with our costs remaining the same. Consequently, as a Kirk Session, we have taken the difficult decision that we will start to use the Church Centre for Sunday Service from Sunday, 10th October.

We will use the Church for Service once a month – this is to comply with the conditions laid down in our Building Insurance. We will keep you well informed as to where our Services will be held. We hope that we will be able to make savings by not having the heating on in the Church. It will be less expensive to heat the Church Centre and we will closely monitor the situation to ensure that we are indeed making savings.

Dalbeattie Parish Church was opened on its current site in 1880 and the Church Centre was completed in early 1990s.

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.
