Musical Evening at Cumbernauld Old

The next social and fund-raising event at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be a Musical Evening on Friday 29th March led by our very talented organist Professor David J.Smith, who will treat us to recitals on harpsichord and organ.
By popular request, David will also be delighting us with his amazing improvisations – will you be able to guess the tune?

There will also be a guest appearance by the Columban Singers, led by their Musical Director Mariot Dallas. Teas, coffees and home baking will be served.

Our last musical evening was a great success, and we are sure this one will be too.
Entry is by a donation to church funds, so please come along by 7.30 on Friday 29th March for a very entertaining and enjoyable evening.

Quiz Night at Kildrum

Kildrum Parish Church is holding a Quiz Night and raffle on Saturday 2nd February at 7.00pm. The money raised from this event will be going towards Natalie Dunn’s trip to Machu Picchu, Peru. She is walking the Inca Trail in October to raise money for GirlGuiding and needs to raise £4000 overall. This event will help towards reaching that goal.

Around half the overall money raised goes to GirlGuiding while the other half goes towards covering the expenses of the trip such as paying doctors to come, to cover accommodation at either end of the trip (the rest is camping on the mountain), the food and the flights.

Teams can be minimum of two people up to eight people maximum. Tickets are £2 per head with tickets available at the door, where you will also be asked how many are in your team. You can also book tickets ahead through Natalie Dunn using Messenger; she will take note of your name and put tickets aside.

Sign-up or find out further information about the event on our Facebook page.
