This will be held in the Parish Church in Cumbernauld Village at the revised time of 11.00am. Transport will be available from Balloch for anyone who requires it.

All being well, we’ll revert to our usual two services at 10.15am in the Parish Church and 11.45am in the Forge Centre from Sunday 23rd August onwards.

You Need Friends…

Messy Church - Sunday 8 FebruaryThe next Cumbernauld Points North Messy Church will be on Sunday 8th February, i.e. this coming Sunday, when we’ll be looking at the theme of ‘friendship’.

There will be lots of crafts and activities linked to that theme, and we’ll hear about the Bible story of a group of people who wanted to help their sick friend so much that they climbed up onto the roof of a house and lowered him down to the room where Jesus was so he could heal him! After a time for games we’ll sit down to share a meal together. The fun starts at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND at 3pm and we’ll finish around 5pm. All welcome!

1st Cumbernauld Boys’ Brigade

The 1st Cumbernauld Boys’ Brigade Company, attached to Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, will be holding their annual display this Thursday 15th May at 7pm in the Forge Centre, Balloch. Please come along and show your support for the officers, leaders and boys as they show what they can do – and help the company fund-raise for Christian Aid Week at the refreshments stall at the interval. See you there!

Messy Church January 2014

Messy Church logoThe first Points North Messy Church of 2014 takes place next Sunday 12th January in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch.

We have a new start-time of 3pm and will aim to finish around 5pm.

We’re starting off the year by looking at some people and stories from the Bible – January’s theme will be ‘Noah’ so expect some animal-themed crafts and songs, and perhaps even a wee surprise with our food near the end of the afternoon.

So please come along next Sunday – you don’t have to come in two-by-two! – and remember our earlier start-time of 3pm. Hope to see you there!
