Filed under Events, Welcome
Thank you so much to everyone who has handed in knitted poppies so far for the Remembrance Day 100th Anniversary display in Cumbernauld Village. Each one has been done with such love, care and attention – they are all just beautiful.
There’s still time to hand in more, so keep them coming! We have wool available at the Parish Church in the Village and at the Forge Centre in Balloch for those who need some.
Now for some great news: Some time ago we submitted an application to the National Lottery for funding to take the project one step further and create a permanent feature to enhance the area around the war memorial in the Baronhill. We have just received news that our application has been successful. We’ll let you know more of our plans soon, so watch this space!

The organist will be Professor David Smith of King’s College, Aberdeen University and the evening will also feature our ‘top ten’ favourite hymns.

A warm welcome is extended to everyone for this ‘not to be missed’ evening.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, in conjunction with Scotland’s Urban Past, will be making a start on a photographic survey of the gravestones in Cumbernauld kirkyard in Baronhill, Cumbernauld Village, on Saturday 28th July.
This will just be a taster session from 10am – 12.30pm and people can come along either to participate or just to find out more.
Equipment and spaces are limited so, if you are interested, please contact Lisa at lisasneds @ gmail.com to give us an idea of numbers. Thanks!
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is opening its doors to visitors once again this summer. Volunteers will be available every Sunday from 2pm to 5pm in July, August and September to welcome visitors and show them around our historic church building in the Village. Hope you can pop by and say hello!
We’ll have different opening arrangements during the weekend of Doors Open Days (8 / 9 September) and will post these nearer the time.
Remember, too, that the Church is open for worship every Sunday at 10.15am and everyone is welcome to attend any of our services. Worship during July and August also takes place each Sunday at the Forge Community Centre in Balloch at 11.45am.
