Open Days at Cumbernauld Old

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!

The Holiday of a Lifetime

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!
