One World Week 2018 runs from 21-28 October. The theme for 2018 is ‘The World is Changing – How about us?’
Cumbernauld will be recognising this year’s One World Week in a worship service to be held in the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar on Sunday 28th October at 3.00pm to which all are welcome.
“The aim of One World Week is to increase understanding of global issues and empowering people to make a difference to help tackle these. The particular aims of OWW 2018 are to draw attention to the difficulties humanity faces, enable people to see alternatives which inspire them to make changes in their own lives and support joint actions which, acting individually and together will achieve human prosperity in a flourishing web of life.”
Sunday 14th October will be our annual Harvest Thanksgiving service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. The service will be conducted by our minister Rev Elspeth McKay and takes place in the Parish Church at 11am.
Once again all donations to the harvest table will go to our own food bank, run in conjunction with Bethlehem House of Bread at Cornerstone House. Donations of tinned and dried goods (pasta, rice, tea, coffee, etc.) are most welcome.
Our food bank no longer receives support from local supermarkets, yet the numbers attending the Village food bank have doubled over the last year, so it relies heavily on our donations. Every tin or packet will be much appreciated. We have a long history of supporting the food bank week by week and there is always a box in the vestibule where you can place donations at any time. Time to give thanks, time to be generous!
Cumbernauld: St Mungo’s Parish Church are holding our Harvest Thanksgiving Service this Sunday 7th October at 11.15am.
We’ll be accepting donations of canned or dry non-perishable goods to be forwarded on to the Salvation Army. Alternatively we shall also be accepting monetary donations for the Glasgow City Mission harvest appeal.
