Festival of Light 2018

181209_010 Festival of Light posterCumbernauld’s annual Festival of Light worship service will take place on Sunday 9th December at 7.30pm in Sacred Heart Church, Kildrum.

This ecumenical service has been organised by a committee gathered from a number of local churches and we hope as many people as possible will come along and support the event.

Croy Silver Band will again be leading the congregational singing and we will be joined by the choir from one of the local primary schools as well as the Columban Singers from Kilsyth.

No tickets are required, but donations taken at the end of the service will be shared between the Third World Group from Sacred Heart Church and Christian Aid.

Calling Cumbernauld Crafters

The poppy-making craft sessions at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church were such a success, with everyone having fun working together and enjoying the chat over tea or coffee and crafts, that a Craft Group is now being organised to continue the fun and fellowship.

We will meet in the Session House at Cumbernauld Old from 2:00 – 4:00pm on Thursday afternoons, starting this week, and everyone will be made most welcome.

Coming Together at Kildrum

On Sunday 25th November, the five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will be coming together for a joint worship service to be held in Kildrum Parish Church at 10.30am.

This joint service will replace the services held in the other four churches for one week only, and we hope there will be an excellent turnout. Everyone will be made most welcome!

Condorrat Christmas Fair

Condorrat Parish Church is getting set to host our annual Christmas Fair on Saturday 24th November. The fun takes place in the Church Halls and doors open at 12 noon. Entry is £1 for adults and only 50p for children.

All the usual stalls and activities will be on offer: crafts, gifts, books, groceries, soft goods, home baking, ‘pop-up paints’ and ‘face-painting’. There will be a tearoom (with tea or coffee), soup & a roll, and we’re hoping there may even be a visit from a certain Mr Claus!
