St Mungo’s Parish Church are having a small Christmas Fayre on Saturday 6th December from 10am till 1pm. Why not come along for some unique gift ideas? A café will also be available to refresh you from Christmas shopping.
Cumbernauld Churches Together are holding a series of Advent Meditations during December. The first is on Wednesday 3rd December, and will be followed by others on Wednesdays 10th and 17th. These Meditations are open to all and will be held in the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar. We start with tea / coffee at 7.00pm and aim to finish around 9pm.
The Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Men’s Group Annual Burns’ Supper will be held on Wednesday 21 January 2015 in Cumbernauld Bowling Club, and everyone is encouraged to come along to this extremely popular social event in the Church calendar.
It might even be considered the social event of the Year and, if you have never been to our Burns’ Supper before, you do not know what you have been missing!
Cumbernauld Burns Club will provide their usual, entertaining dialogue, masterminded by Callum Cormack, our Chairman for the evening. Our own Janet Graham and David Boyle will provide excellent musical interludes, and Anne Walker will provide her usual wit in defence of the ladies. You will also be served a first class meal! All in all, a great night, not to be missed.
Tickets are now available from any member of the Men’s Group, modestly priced at £7 per head. The time on the evening is 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Hope to see you there.
Our annual Christmas Fair is on Saturday 29th November in the Village Hall, The Wynd. Doors are open from 10am until 12.30pm and we hope to offer a wide range of stalls, crafts and the usual tearoom. We’re sure Santa will manage to come along and there will also be lots of activities to keep the children occupied in the kidzone.
We are currently looking for donations of baking, raffle and tombola prizes, knitting, soft goods, toys and games in good condition, and Deans’ shortbread for the tearoom. We’ll also be raffling our popular Festive Hampers and a chart is available at church and at the Forge for items that can be handed in. Unfortunately, due to a lack of storage, we are unable to accept any more bric-a-brac or books.
We hope to see you all on Saturday 29th!
Our Christmas Fayre will be held in the Church Halls on Saturday 29 November at 12 noon. Admission is 50p for adults and 20p for children. There will be a tearoom and stalls will include toys & games, books, CDs, DVDs, Tombola, Christmas stall, toiletries, sweets, hand-crafted cards, home baking and groceries. There will also be a guest appearance of a ‘certain gentleman’. Do come along – everyone is very welcome.
Thank you to all those who were involved in or who attended our recent Coffee Morning and Craft Fair which raised £555 for church funds.
