This ecumenical service has been organised by a committee gathered from a number of local churches and we hope as many people as possible will come along and support the event.

Croy Silver Band will again be leading the congregational singing and we will be joined by the choir from one of the local primary schools as well as the Columban Singers from Kilsyth.

No tickets are required, but donations taken at the end of the service will be shared between the Third World Group from Sacred Heart Church and Christian Aid.

Coming Together at Kildrum

On Sunday 25th November, the five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will be coming together for a joint worship service to be held in Kildrum Parish Church at 10.30am.

This joint service will replace the services held in the other four churches for one week only, and we hope there will be an excellent turnout. Everyone will be made most welcome!

Harvest Thanksgiving at Cumbernauld Old

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!

Harvest Thanksgiving at St Mungo’s

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.
