Election of Minister at Cumbernauld Old

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to announce that the congregation has elected Rev Elspeth McKay as their new minister.

A date for the induction of Rev McKay to Cumbernauld Old has still to be set, but is likely to be towards the end of July / start of August.  The congregation is looking forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into the community and will post further information about her induction once that becomes known.

Meanwhile, the worship, witness and work of the church continues, and so we encourage everyone to continue to give their full support to the Interim Moderator, Locum and office-bearers.
