Welcome to the blog of the five congregations of the Church of Scotland in Cumbernauld. We hope you enjoy your visit and find the information posted here to be of interest.
We’ve been advised of a couple of (quite different) events coming up in the next week or two and thought we’d pass on the details. The first is an event called The Kelpies Canter, organised by Christian Aid, and the other is a half-day conference to be co-hosted by Pray for Scotland.
If you have any questions about these events, please contact the organisers directly as we’ve no information other than what has been copied below.
On Sunday 28th August the five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will come together for a joint service of worship at 10.30am in Condorrat Parish Church.
This joint service will replace the usual morning worship services in each of the five Cumbernauld Church of Scotland congregations and we look forward to welcoming church members and visitors alike on the day.
Susan Boland will be running another CAP Money Course from Thursday 25th August at 10am in Abronhill Parish Church halls. If you are interested or wish further information please either contact Susan by leaving a message below (we’ll pass it on) or register your interest on the CAP money course website. The course will run for 3 sessions with time in-between for you to engage fully with the material.
The CAP Money Course is described on their website as “a free course that will teach you budgeting skills and a simple, cash-based system that works. In just a few weeks, you will get to grips with your finances so you can budget, save and prevent debt.”
At the request of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland, in return for their generous financial support of the restoration of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, the Church will be open to the public each Sunday from 10th July to 18th September inclusive from 2pm – 5pm.
A church on the present site was first built in 1225 and the existing building, constructed on these original foundations, came into use in 1659.
If you would like to know our building’s history, from the Plague to the present, and admire its architecture, artifacts and beautiful stained glass windows, please come along on any Sunday afternoon during the summer months. We’d be delighted to see you!
We’re all starting to think about going on holiday – and this stunning weather helps! This month in J.A.F.A. Church we’re thinking about “The holiday of a lifetime”.
Where do you think our destination might be? Come along and join in the fun – make your own passport, join in with the team game to pack a suitcase, look up atlas and road maps to plan your journey, or build a 3D jigsaw of the world.
No holiday by the seaside would be complete without fish and chips – so guess what we’re having for tea this month?
The fun takes place from 4 -6pm on Sunday 26th June at Abronhill Parish Church. See you then!
