Calling Cumbernauld Crafters

The poppy-making craft sessions at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church were such a success, with everyone having fun working together and enjoying the chat over tea or coffee and crafts, that a Craft Group is now being organised to continue the fun and fellowship.

We will meet in the Session House at Cumbernauld Old from 2:00 – 4:00pm on Thursday afternoons, starting this week, and everyone will be made most welcome.

Coming Together at Kildrum

On Sunday 25th November, the five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will be coming together for a joint worship service to be held in Kildrum Parish Church at 10.30am.

This joint service will replace the services held in the other four churches for one week only, and we hope there will be an excellent turnout. Everyone will be made most welcome!

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!
