The final two fund-raisers of the year for Cumbernauld Old Parish Church are the Christmas Hamper Raffle and Carols by Candlelight, an evening of favourite carols, festive readings and a winter-warmer mulled fruit punch and seasonal bites on arrival.
This will be held in the church on Friday 20th December at 7.30pm. We are suggesting a donation of £5 per ticket, and these are now available. The raffle for the Christmas Hamper will be drawn on the night. We are also still open to donations of items for the hamper.
Time for another plug for the annual Festival of Light, organised by Cumbernauld Churches Together, which will be held on Sunday 8th December at 7.30pm in St Mungo’s Parish Church in Cumbernauld.
This beautiful candle-lit ecumenical service of nine hymns and four readings will feature Croy Silver Band as well as local choirs and favourite Christmas carols. Donations for Christian Aid and the Third World Group of Sacred Heart Church would be appreciated, although not necessary.
