Condorrat Parish Church news

Our Christmas Fayre will be held in the Church Halls on Saturday 28 November from 12 noon to 2pm.  There will be a tearoom serving soup and a roll as well as home-baking and there will be all the usual stalls, with the exception of Bric a Brac. Santa will be in his grotto, so bring the children to meet him.  Pop up Paints will be there again with activities for children and adults.  Also, Thorntons are bringing their Advent calendars to personalise and every calendar sold makes £1 for the church. Everyone is very welcome so do please come along.

Thank you to all those who came to our Autumn Craft Fair and Coffee Morning which raised £640 for church funds and Andy and Harvey’s Final Show held on 7 November raised £190 for the Craigalbert Centre.

Christmas Fair update

A huge THANK-YOU to everyone who helped make last Saturday’s Christmas Fair at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church such a success. It’s impossible to name everyone, but the list includes those who came along to the Village Hall on Friday night to help get things set up, everyone who donated items for the stalls, tearoom, prizes, etc., all those who staffed the stalls on the day and those helped clear up afterwards, those who made and served the teas, Santa Claus (of course!) who gave up some time from his busy schedule to pay them a visit, the people who did all the planning, phoning and cajoling behind the scenes and, finally, everyone who came along and supported the event with their time and their money.

It was a real team effort by so many people. The people at Cumbernauld Old are delighted to say that around £2012 was raised for Church funds and they extend their thanks to everyone who contributed in whatever way.

Next Saturday, 30th November, it’s the turn of Condorrat Parish Church, whose annual Christmas Fayre will be held in the Church halls starting at 12 noon and which will be opened by Jamie Hepburn, MSP. Full details in an earlier post.

Cumbernauld Old’s Christmas Fair

The next major fund-raising event at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is the Christmas Fair, which takes place in the Village Hall in The Wynd, Cumbernauld Village on Saturday 23rd November starting at 10am. As well as most of the familiar stalls they plan to have a ‘market area’ with a variety of items suitable for Christmas presents.

The organisers are currently looking for donations for the Christmas Hamper, raffle and tombola prizes, baking, soft goods and good quality (complete) children’s toys and games. Due to storage restrictions there won’t be a bookstall or bric-a-brac stall this year. Donations can be handed in at at the Village Hall on Friday 22nd from 7pm – 9pm.

You can also take part in a Festive Quiz – last year you were all raking through your biscuit tins to find the names of favourite brands; this year you have the perfect excuse to hover in the sweetie aisle as this year’s quiz is all about sweets, past and present. Quiz sheets are priced £1.

Cumbernauld Old Cookery Book

The people at Cumbernauld Old are hoping to produce a new Cookery Book which we will have on sale at this year’s Christmas Fayre on Saturday 23rd November. So, we are asking people to share their favourite recipes: either old ones they have used through the years or tasty new discoveries. We are hoping to have a range of both savoury and sweet dishes, so feel free to share more than one if you wish.
Please pass any recipes to us as soon as possible, and by 22nd September at the latest so we can get them typed up and collated. Thank you!

A BIG Thank-You

COPC Christmas Fair 2012

The calm before the storm!

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to say a BIG ‘thank-you’ to everyone who helped make our Christmas Fair on Saturday 24th November such a success.
That includes everyone who set things up on Friday evening, all who donated and contributed to the stalls and those who sold as much as they could on the day, all who slaved over hot teas and coffees for the huge numbers of visitors, the Brownies and the wonderful Jazz Group for entertaining us so handsomely, Santa for helping whip up the Christmas enthusiasm in our younger visitors and all other helpers too many to mention.

Thanks, also, to all who came and spent their money supporting us – we’ll update you with the total amount raised as soon as we can – and, finally, to Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison for all their hard work over many weeks organising such a successful fair.
