Hello and welcome to the Dalbeattie & Kirkgunzeon Parish Church website.

As Christmas approaches and people are beginning to think of Our Lord as a tiny little baby, you may be thinking about church and the true meaning of Christmas.

It gets lost in the hustle and bustle of of glitter and lights and shopping and wrapping to name just a few things.

Why not take a moment and stay still and calm and rethink Christmas?  It doesn’t need to be a lavish time with all sorts of luxury that we don’t really need, it is family and friends time.  Time to celebrate the birth of Christ.

Why not take some time out and join us on a Sunday in Advent, feel the love of God through worship, know the power of Christ through prayer and enjoy the fellowship with others as we celebrate.  Our service is at 11.00am every Sunday and we have fellowship over tea and coffee after that, it is a valuable social time.

You will receive a very warm welcome, come amd see, come and hear, come and pray, please come and join us.

Fiona, Minister.


Rev Fiona Wilson and Richard Wilson

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.
