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.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is planning to open its doors to visitors every Sunday afternoon, between 2pm and 5pm, during July, August and the early part of September.
A team of members will be available to show people round and to answer any questions they may have. Books charting the history of the church from the 13th Century onwards will also be available for sale.
The church is situated in Baronhill, Cumbernauld Village and a warm welcome awaits.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to announce that the total collected from this year’s Christian Aid Week door-to-door collection in the parish was £2595.01 and that the Boys’ Brigade Display raised another £300 for Christian Aid. This is a marvellous total and is £700 more than was collected last year!
Furthermore, from that total, the donations made under Gift Aid amounted to £1274, meaning Christian Aid can recover the tax already paid on them, adding a further 20% or so. Thanks to everyone who completed the Gift Aid form on their red envelope.
The Church of Scotland congregations in the Presbytery of Falkirk (which includes the Cumbernauld churches) are holding an event over three days at the start of June called Pop-Up Pentecost.
On the the first two days there will be a Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate Shopping Centre in Falkirk and on the Saturday there will be activities for all the family in a marquee at Falkirk Trinity Church in the town centre (inside the church if the weather’s bad). Entry to all events is free and we’ve created a Facebook event page for further details.
Thursday 1 June – 12 to 4 – Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate
Friday 2 June – 11 to 3 – Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate
Saturday 3 June – 11 to 3 – Pop-Up Pentecost, with crafts, games, music and stories, at Falkirk Trinity Church
