The Church will be open from 1.00pm – 3.00pm when any donation, large or small will be gladly received. This will also be an opportunity to find out more about ‘Gift Aid’.
Cumbernauld Choir are holding a Coffee Morning on Saturday 31 March at St Mungo’s Parish Church. Doors open from 10am – 1pm.
Each congregation in the Church of Scotland has been asked to set aside time each year to focus on an aspect of stewardship, whether that be money, talents or time. Cumbernauld Old has decided to designate September as their Stewardship Season this year and focus on the theme of Time. To that end we are holding a Congregational Conference on Sunday 29th April from 2pm to 5pm in the Craighalbert Centre. This will be open to the whole congregation, so we invite you to please come along and join in as we decide on the shape and content of our stewardship season in September. To help us get an idea of numbers please let us know if you will be attending.
