The next Toddlers’ Praise Service will be held in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Saturday 25th March, starting around 11am. There will be songs, stories and activities on an Easter theme for youngsters and their families, and we invite those attending – of whatever age! – to wear bright, Easter colours on the day and make the church sparkle with light. Hope to see you there!
We invite those attending worship on Sunday 26th March, to bring along a small chocolate Easter Egg. These will be collected after the service and distributed by our friends at Cornerstone to children who otherwise might miss out.
Cumbernauld Old holds its annual ‘Rainbow Service’ in the Parish Church on Sunday 18th December at 3pm.
This short service is for those who have been bereaved, either recently or some time ago, and find the ‘jolly’ side of Christmas painful or tinged with sadness. We invite you to come along for a service of worship, remembrance and reflection.
During the service you will have the opportunity to tie a coloured ribbon to the Rainbow Tree in memory of a loved one, as well as take one home as a keepsake. Please note this service is not suitable for young children.
The Rainbow Tree will remain in church until Easter Day, when all the ribbons will be carefully removed, ironed and made into something beautiful.
On Remembrance Sunday, 13th November, there will be a short worship service including the Act of Remembrance led by the Salvation Army at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village at 10.45am. The morning worship service in the Parish Church will then follow at 11.15am, instead of our usual 10.15am start-time.
Remembrance Sunday worship at the Forge in Balloch will take place at the usual time of 11.45am and include a two-minute silence at noon.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is looking for a new Minister. The advert below was published in Life and Work during the summer and we believe the person we seek is out there, just waiting for that sense of call. If this is you, or you know of someone who would like to join us, please get in touch – the relevant contact details are in the advert.

At the request of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland, in return for their generous financial support of the restoration of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, the Church will be open to the public each Sunday from 10th July to 18th September inclusive from 2pm – 5pm.
A church on the present site was first built in 1225 and the existing building, constructed on these original foundations, came into use in 1659.
If you would like to know our building’s history, from the Plague to the present, and admire its architecture, artifacts and beautiful stained glass windows, please come along on any Sunday afternoon during the summer months. We’d be delighted to see you!
