Broadway comes to Cumbernauld

Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Group will present a musical extravaganza on Thursday 1 November in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch.

They will take us on a journey through some of Broadway’s best loved classics and modern day hits. Doors open at 7.00pm and the performance will start at 7.15pm. Tickets are £5, available from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church or by calling (01236) 724933.

Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society is a very professional, talented group whose concerts are always a sell out. We are delighted that they have agreed to perform for Cumbernauld Old Parish Church in aid of church funds.

Harvest Thanksgiving at Cumbernauld Old

Sunday 14th October will be our annual Harvest Thanksgiving service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. The service will be conducted by our minister Rev Elspeth McKay and takes place in the Parish Church at 11am.

Once again all donations to the harvest table will go to our own food bank, run in conjunction with Bethlehem House of Bread at Cornerstone House. Donations of tinned and dried goods (pasta, rice, tea, coffee, etc.) are most welcome.

Our food bank no longer receives support from local supermarkets, yet the numbers attending the Village food bank have doubled over the last year, so it relies heavily on our donations. Every tin or packet will be much appreciated. We have a long history of supporting the food bank week by week and there is always a box in the vestibule where you can place donations at any time. Time to give thanks, time to be generous!

Armistice Day Project – an update

A huge thanks to everyone who has contributed to the poppy project being run jointly by Cumbernauld Old Parish Church and Cumbernauld Village Community Council. A lot has been happening over the past few months and we’d like to bring you up-to-date.

We have met with two artists who are going to assemble the main display, and they are going to create ‘waterfalls’ of poppies coming over the galleries in the church as well as a poppy banner outside.

Our booklet giving more details about the 61 men from the Village who died in the First World War is progressing well, thanks to a hardworking wee team, and hopefully it will be available on the 11th November. The dedicated website will be a little later.

Our poppy bower and bench for the memorial area around the Village War Memorial are on order and should really enhance that area of the Baronhill. We’ll keep everyone updated as Armistice Day gets nearer.

Doors Open Days

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be participating in North Lanarkshire’s Doors Open Days event this weekend. The Parish Church will be open between the hours of 1pm and 5pm on both Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September.

If you’re in the area, why not pop by and say “hello”?

West End at the Westerwood

Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society has kindly volunteered to provide an evening of entertainment as a fundraiser event for Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We hope this will take place in early November – more details to follow.

In the meantime, in the interest of fostering positive local relationships, the Church Fundraising Group is keen to support this fantastic local theatre group. The Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society will be performing a range of songs at their show ‘West End at the Westerwood‘ on Saturday 13th (already sold out) and Sunday 14th October at the Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld. We have been offered the opportunity of a block booking for the 2.30pm matinee performance on Sunday 14th October at a reduced price of £10 per person.

This will give you a chance to see and hear the Society in action before they come to perform at our fundraiser, when the programme of songs will be different. If you wish to book a place for the Westerwood show on 14th October, please get in touch and we’ll pass on your details to our fundraising team.
