Cumbernauld Old’s new look

Cumbernauld Old returned to their Parish Church building for worship this morning after the completion of work on the church roof. After an absence of nine months or so, it’s fair to say that everyone present was taken aback by the transformation. It’s great to see the old place looking so new!

Worship takes place in the Parish Church every Sunday at 10.15am and in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch at 11.45am. We assure you of a warm welcome at either service.

Cumbernauld Old announce re-opening of church building

Cumbernauld Old are delighted to announce that, all being well, we will be back in our Parish Church building for our 10.15am worship service this Sunday 26th January.

It has been a long time coming, nearly nine months, but barring any last-minute unforeseen circumstances we’ll be back in the church building for worship in just a few days’ time.

Our 11.45am services continue, of course, at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch and we’d be delighted to welcome you to either of our worship centres on Sunday.

Moderator leads worship at St Mungo’s

The Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, Rt Rev Lorna Hood, preached at a joint ecumenical worship service last night in St Mungo’s Parish Church, Cumbernauld. Representatives from other churches also took part in the service and there was an opportunity for a ‘meet & greet’ afterwards.

The service marked the start of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity and had as its theme “Is Christ Divided?” from 1 Corinthians 1: 1 – 17.

Into the Lion’s Den at J.A.F.A. Church

January’s J.A.F.A. Church at Abronhill Parish Church will centre around the Old Testament story of Daniel and his three friends. Although they were under the rule of the king, they refused to conform to his laws, declaring that they would obey only God’s law.

They “dared to be different” and gained respect and admiration from their peers and the king himself. Daniel was saved from a terrible death when he was thrown into a den full of hungry lions and his three friends were saved from burning alive in a furnace, all by God’s saving power and grace.

Come along to Abronhill Parish Church on Sunday 26th January and find out more! Activities will all centre around this great book found in the Old Testament.
