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.
Condorrat Parish Church will be hosting an Easter Toddlers’ Praise Service on Sunday 25th March at 2pm.
The service will last about half-an-hour and is designed for children under primary school age. We hope it will be fun for them with songs, stories and other activities followed by juice and biscuits (tea and coffee for the adults).
If you know of any children of the appropriate age who you think might like to come along please let them know. We would be delighted to see them, along with Mums, Dads, Brothers, Sisters, Grans and Grandads.
Please come along and celebrate the Easter story with us.
Falkirk Presbytery of the Church of Scotland will be hosting ‘Easter Cracked Open‘, an event for all ages, in the Community Hub of the Howgate Shopping Centre, Falkirk on Saturday 24th March from 11.00am to 3.00pm.
There will be stories, games, crafts and music, all on an Easter theme.
Why not pop in and say “hello”?
Good morning everyone!
Just in case you missed the flurry (❄sorry!) of activity on our Facebook page and Twitter feed yesterday evening, we can advise that the worship services at Abronhill, Condorrat, Kildrum and St Mungo’s Parish Churches tomorrow have been cancelled due to the outdoor conditions and continuing severe weather alerts.
As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.
Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.
Due to the heavy snowfalls and the snowdrifts that are covering the entrance and emergency exits, it has been decided to cancel the morning Service this Sunday 4 March. This is to ensure the health and safety of our congregation.
Strathcarron Hospice is appealing for volunteers to take part in their ‘Compassionate Neighbours’ campaign. They are looking for people who are willing to support someone with a long term illness at home.
Each situation is different but it may just be popping in for a cuppa and a chat, offering friendship and a listening ear, or perhaps helping them to continue to do things they enjoy. No specialist skills or knowledge are required, just a willingness to give a little time to help someone who may be feeling isolated or lonely.
More information about Strathcarron’s Compassionate Neighbours scheme, whether you are looking to volunteer or need support yourself, is available from the Hospice at 01324 826222, or contact Susan (susanhigh at nhs.net) or Mandy (mandyross2 at nhs.net)
