A number of our churches in Cumbernauld will be celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion this weekend. Here are the details we have so far:
Condorrat Parish Church will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on Sunday 1st September at 11.00am and all are welcome.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion in the Village Church on Sunday 1st September at 11.00am. There will also be a short, reflective celebration of Communion in the Church at 6.30pm and all are welcome to come to either or both of these services.
St Mungo’s Parish Church will celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion on Sunday 1st September. The service starts at 11.30am and a warm welcome is offered to all.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is opening its doors to visitors once again this summer. Volunteers will be available every Sunday from 2pm to 5pm in July, August and September to welcome visitors and show them around our historic church building in the Village. Hope you can pop by and say hello!
Remember, too, that the Church is open for worship every Sunday at 11.00am and everyone is welcome to attend any of our services.
A huge thank-you to everyone who took part in this year’s Christian Aid Week at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We recently counted the money collected and are delighted to announce that £1900.29 was raised by the door-to-door, congregation and ‘neighbours’ donations. A further £311 was raised at the Boys’ Brigade Annual Display.
When one adds the Gift Aid pledged on those donations, the final total raised for Christian Aid is a wonderful £2433.83.
That is an impressive amount of money, especially as there were only six door-to-door collectors this year. Thanks are due to them, and to our BB Company, but also to everyone in the congregation who invited their ‘Christmas Card neighbours’ to donate; this really has made a huge difference to the total amount raised. This contribution to Christian Aid will hopefully have a considerable impact on the women of Sierra Leone.
Thanks again, everyone!

Meeting outside the former Dunnes store at 10:15am for a 10:30 start, we will remember the events, and retell the story, of the crucifixion of Jesus on the first Good Friday. Our walk will end about an hour later at Cumbernauld United Reformed Church.
Thanks to everyone who collected their small change in jars, etc last year Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has ‘twinned’ the toilet in our Session House with one in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
