A reminder that this Sunday evening – 3rd December – there will be a ‘Come and Sing‘ Christmas Carol service in Abronhill Parish Church at 6.30pm.
There will be carols old and new with some spoken words in-between groups of carols, so the congregation can catch their breath! There will also be refreshments afterwards.
Cumbernauld’s annual Festival of Light carol service will be held on Sunday 10th December 2017 at 7.30pm in St Mungo’s Parish Church in the Town Centre.
Everyone is cordially invited to this ecumenical service of readings and carols. The Croy Silver Band will once more lead the congregational singing, an incredibly talented Gaelic duet will sing, and the choir from Ravenswood Primary School will also contribute to what promises to be another memorable evening.
We invite you to take some time out from all the hustle and bustle in the lead-up to Christmas and join us on the evening of Sunday 10th December. Entry is free and you don’t need a ticket, but donations for Christian Aid and the One World Group will be gratefully received at the end of the service.
