Musical Evening at Cumbernauld Old

The next social and fund-raising event at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be a Musical Evening on Friday 29th March led by our very talented organist Professor David J.Smith, who will treat us to recitals on harpsichord and organ.
By popular request, David will also be delighting us with his amazing improvisations – will you be able to guess the tune?

There will also be a guest appearance by the Columban Singers, led by their Musical Director Mariot Dallas. Teas, coffees and home baking will be served.

Our last musical evening was a great success, and we are sure this one will be too.
Entry is by a donation to church funds, so please come along by 7.30 on Friday 29th March for a very entertaining and enjoyable evening.

Are they of any use? YES!! Would you consider donating these bits and pieces to the church? They could be put to very good use.

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!
