The annual Festival of Light service will be held this year in Sacred Heart Church in Kildrum on Sunday 4 December at 7.30 pm and everyone is cordially invited to come along and join this ecumenical Carol Service.
This festival of Christmas carols and Bible readings has been going for 26 years and is organised by a committee drawn from many Cumbernauld churches. This year’s festival will feature Cumbernauld Choir and the children from Carbrain Primary School as well as festival stalwarts, the Croy Silver Band. The readings will be given by Andrew Longye, Minister at the Free Church, Stuart McDonald MP, Liz Dalling and Ivar Struthers from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church of Scotland. The reflection this year will be given by Deacon Kenny McGeachie of St Lucy’s in Abronhill.
As well as bringing congregations from all of Cumbernauld’s Churches together in a Christmas celebration, the Festival Of Light is also a fundraising event for Sacred Heart’s Third World Group and for Christian Aid, whose Christmas Appeal this year coincidentally is entitled Light the Way for people fleeing violence this Christmas.
Please come along and lend your support to this wonderful Christmas service. It really is a very special evening. We attach a poster you may wish to copy and circulate. But most of all, please come along and show your support on Sunday 4th December.
The annual Festival of Light Service takes place on Sunday 6th December at St Mungo’s Parish Church in Cumbernauld Town Centre at 7.30pm.
Please come if you can and join the congregation to sing carols, hear readings from the Bible and listen to the Croy Silver Band and the Gaelic Choir.
It will be a memorable evening and we look forward to welcoming you. Entry is by donation with the proceeds being shared between Christian Aid and the Third World Group of Sacred Heart church.
The organising committee of the hugely successful 2014 Festival of Light is pleased to announce that the total raised by the retiring collection was £642.25. This amount was split evenly between Christian Aid and Scared Heart’s Third World Group.
The committee very much hope to see you at this year’s event, which will be held on Sunday 6 December at 7.30pm. (Venue to be confirmed.) Please can you put this in your diaries now in order to save the date, and we look forward to welcoming you to this wonderful Cumbernauld institution.
The Cumbernauld Points North Messy Church team will be hosting a Messy Christmas event next Sunday (14th December) in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch.
The fun starts at 3pm where we will be making Christmas crafts, singing a few Christmas carols, hearing the Christmas story, enjoying some games and finishing up with a Christmas party meal.
Whether you’ve been to Messy Church before, or want to find out what Messy Church is all about, we’d be delighted to see you.
All together now: “We wish you a Messy Christmas…”
