Good morning everyone!
Just in case you missed the flurry (❄sorry!) of activity on our Facebook page and Twitter feed yesterday evening, we can advise that the worship services at Abronhill, Condorrat, Kildrum and St Mungo’s Parish Churches tomorrow have been cancelled due to the outdoor conditions and continuing severe weather alerts.
As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.
Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.
The next of our churches to publicise their worship services for this Christmas season is Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. Their Christmas diary reads as follows:

On Saturday 9th the church will be open to visitors from 1-5pm.
On Sunday 10th the church will be open from 2-5pm, as well as for morning worship at 10.15am.
Thanks to all the volunteers who put their name forward to provide a welcome over the Doors Open Days weekend. A warm welcome is assured!
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will soon have a new minister!
The Presbytery of Falkirk will induct Rev Elspeth McKay as minister of Cumbernauld Old at a service to be held in the church on Thursday 3rd August at 7.00pm.
We are looking forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into our church and community and hope they feel very much at home here.
On Sunday 6th August at 11.00am in the Parish Church, Elspeth will be ‘preached in’ by her friend and colleague Rev Ian Dick. That service will replace our usual two services at 10.15am and 11.45am, the latter at the Forge Centre, Balloch.
