Christian Aid Week – it’s good news!

Christian Aid thank-you envelopeCumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to announce that the total collected from this year’s Christian Aid Week door-to-door collection in the parish was £2595.01 and that the Boys’ Brigade Display raised another £300 for Christian Aid. This is a marvellous total and is £700 more than was collected last year!

Furthermore, from that total, the donations made under Gift Aid amounted to £1274, meaning Christian Aid can recover the tax already paid on them, adding a further 20% or so. Thanks to everyone who completed the Gift Aid form on their red envelope.

Election of Minister at Cumbernauld Old

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to announce that the congregation has elected Rev Elspeth McKay as their new minister.

A date for the induction of Rev McKay to Cumbernauld Old has still to be set, but is likely to be towards the end of July / start of August.  The congregation is looking forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into the community and will post further information about her induction once that becomes known.

Meanwhile, the worship, witness and work of the church continues, and so we encourage everyone to continue to give their full support to the Interim Moderator, Locum and office-bearers.

Big Day for Cumbernauld Old

On Sunday 30th April, Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will welcome Rev Elspeth McKay to preach as ‘sole nominee’ for the vacant charge.

Rev Elspeth McKay has been recommended by the Nominating Committee elected by the congregation and, following our worship service on Sunday 30th, there will be a secret ballot of our members and adherents present at the service on whether or not she should become our new minister.

This service will take place in the Parish Church at 11.00am and replaces our usual two services at 10.15am and 11.45am (the latter usually at the Forge Centre in Balloch).

The ballot, of those on the electoral register of the church who are also present on the day, will follow immediately after the service and the result announced shortly thereafter.

So, whether you are a regular attender, come to our church occasionally or haven’t been for a while, we look forward to welcoming you to Cumbernauld Old on Sunday 30th April at 11.00am for what is the next chapter in our congregation’s life.

Toddlers’ Praise & Easter Eggs

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.
