Open Days at Cumbernauld Old

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!

Cumbernauld Food-bank update

Starting from Friday 10th April we plan to open the Session House at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on a weekly basis as a satellite distribution centre for the food-bank based at Cornerstone House. We have a group of volunteers ready to go, but would appreciate help distributing fliers to local businesses. If you can help please contact Sandra Graham at 01236 732280.

The food-bank in the Village will be open every Friday from 11am until 12.30pm. Please note that no food will be stored at the Old Parish Church during the week.

Thank you for your continued support for the Food Banks in Cumbernauld. Unfortunately, this looks like a long-term commitment and donations are still very welcome – mainly of tinned goods, please: e.g. mince, stew, curry, hot dogs, chopped ham / pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, plus tea bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits.

Please contact 07737 999104 or email Bethlehem [at] Cornerstone-House.org.uk if you require more information.

Burns’ Supper – 21 January 2015

The Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Men’s Group Annual Burns’ Supper will be held on Wednesday 21 January 2015 in Cumbernauld Bowling Club, and everyone is encouraged to come along to this extremely popular social event in the Church calendar.

It might even be considered the social event of the Year and, if you have never been to our Burns’ Supper before, you do not know what you have been missing!

Cumbernauld Burns Club will provide their usual, entertaining dialogue, masterminded by Callum Cormack, our Chairman for the evening. Our own Janet Graham and David Boyle will provide excellent musical interludes, and Anne Walker will provide her usual wit in defence of the ladies. You will also be served a first class meal! All in all, a great night, not to be missed.

Tickets are now available from any member of the Men’s Group, modestly priced at £7 per head. The time on the evening is 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Hope to see you there.
