Doors Open at Cumbernauld Old

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is opening its doors to visitors once again this summer. Volunteers will be available every Sunday from 2pm to 5pm in July, August and September to welcome visitors and show them around our historic church building in the Village. Hope you can pop by and say hello!

We’ll have different opening arrangements during the weekend of Doors Open Days (8 / 9 September) and will post these nearer the time.

Remember, too, that the Church is open for worship every Sunday at 10.15am and everyone is welcome to attend any of our services. Worship during July and August also takes place each Sunday at the Forge Community Centre in Balloch at 11.45am.

Sunday 4th March

Good morning everyone!
Just in case you missed the flurry (❄sorry!) of activity on our Facebook page and Twitter feed yesterday evening, we can advise that the worship services at Abronhill, Condorrat, Kildrum and St Mungo’s Parish Churches tomorrow have been cancelled due to the outdoor conditions and continuing severe weather alerts.
As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.

Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.

On the form you need to give some details about yourself and why you want to be a rep, and then get two different people to nominate you (one of them needs to be your minister / youth worker).
