Toddlers’ Praise & Easter Eggs

The next Toddlers’ Praise Service will be held in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Saturday 25th March, starting around 11am. There will be songs, stories and activities on an Easter theme for youngsters and their families, and we invite those attending – of whatever age! – to wear bright, Easter colours on the day and make the church sparkle with light. Hope to see you there!

We invite those attending worship on Sunday 26th March, to bring along a small chocolate Easter Egg. These will be collected after the service and distributed by our friends at Cornerstone to children who otherwise might miss out.

Rainbow Service 2016

The Rainbow Tree 2014Cumbernauld Old holds its annual ‘Rainbow Service’ in the Parish Church on Sunday 18th December at 3pm.

This short service is for those who have been bereaved, either recently or some time ago, and find the ‘jolly’ side of Christmas painful or tinged with sadness. We invite you to come along for a service of worship, remembrance and reflection.

During the service you will have the opportunity to tie a coloured ribbon to the Rainbow Tree in memory of a loved one, as well as take one home as a keepsake. Please note this service is not suitable for young children.

The Rainbow Tree will remain in church until Easter Day, when all the ribbons will be carefully removed, ironed and made into something beautiful.
