Condorrat News

This year our Guild is celebrating 95 years of worship, prayer and action.  They have a full programme ahead and held a celebratory birthday evening on Wednesday, 26 October.  Many congratulations Guild!

Thank you to the crafters, all who attended and everyone who helped in any way to make our Craft Fair and Coffee Morning on Saturday 22 October such a success.  We raised over £700 for church funds.  Likewise the annual Ladies Lunch and Fashion Show held at The Westerwood Hotel on Saturday 15 October was a most enjoyable and successful event raising £3,700.  Thank you to all.  Our next social event is the Christmas Fayre which will be held on Saturday 26 November.  More details in a future posting.

Book Launch by former Cumbernauld minister

Tomas Bisek book coverRev. Tomas Bisek, a former Associate Minister at Condorrat Parish Church in Cumbernauld, has published a book called “Finding My Way“, memories of a Czech Dissident 1939-2008.

The book tells the story of Tomas’ life in what was then Czechoslovakia: his early childhood during the Second World War; his youth and army service under the Soviet Communist regime; his life as a minister in the Evangelical Church of the Czech Brethren; his signing, along with his wife Daniela, of Charter 77 and their subsequent persecution by the regime leading to their exile in 1985.  Tomas relates how they then came to Scotland with their young family and, struggling with the pain of exile, he worked as a minister in Cumbernauld and in Glasgow until they were able to return in 1996, after the collapse of the Communist regime, to a Prague that was much changed.

Tomas BisekTomas and Daniela will be in Edinburgh to attend a launch event for the book during the Church of Scotland General Assembly.  The launch will take place on Wednesday, 25th May at around 1pm in the Augustine Centre on George IV Bridge. A complimentary light lunch will be served from 12.30 and copies of the book will be available to buy at the cover price of £9.95. There will also be an opportunity for questions and discussion. You are warmly invited to attend this event.

Copies of the book are also available to buy at a pre-launch price of £8.00, before May 25th. If you would like to order a copy, please contact John & Mary Miller by email: mary.miller15 at btinternet.com, or by post to 0/1 98 Kirkcaldy Road, Glasgow G41 4LD.
