Doors Open at Cumbernauld Old

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!

We’ll have different opening arrangements during the weekend of Doors Open Days (8 / 9 September) and will post these nearer the time.

Remember, too, that the Church is open for worship every Sunday at 10.15am and everyone is welcome to attend any of our services. Worship during July and August also takes place each Sunday at the Forge Community Centre in Balloch at 11.45am.

Knitting for Remembrance

180408_010 Poppy samplers at COPCCumbernauld Old Parish Church and Cumbernauld Village Community Council are looking for ways to commemorate the centenary of the ending of the First World War later this year.

One of the suggestions is to create a memorial display of knitted poppies. They have put together a sample of the kinds of poppies that can be hand-knitted (pictured) and produced knitting patterns for each design.

Obviously, the more poppies that can be knitted, the larger the final display that will be produced. So please pick up a pattern leaflet from the church or from the Community Council and make your own little contribution to the display. Thanks for your help!
