On Friday 27th January, St Mungo’s Parish Church in Cumbernauld is holding a Family and Friends Dinner at the Castlecary House Hotel. This is not a fund raising event, it’s entirely to promote the ethos of the Church Family and to welcome your family and friends to share in an evening with us.
Tickets are still available from Marion Chalmers. The price for adults is £20 and for children under 12 are £10.00. For tickets please call Marion on 01236 720917. Thank you.
Forthcoming events: The annual Fundraising Dinner & Auction on Friday, 5 September at 7 pm in Cumbernauld Town Hall and the Jonathan Veira Concert on Saturday, 13 September at Westwoodhill Church, East Kilbride. For more details visit www.revivalfm.org
The next Messy Church organised by Condorrat and Cumbernauld Old Parish Churches will be happening at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch this coming Sunday, Easter Day, starting around 4pm.
Messy Church is a couple of hours of fun and mess; a time for people to come together and enjoy crafts and activities, hear stories from the Bible, ending with a time of celebration and then dinner. Messy Church is open to everyone and the Points North Messy Church team will be delighted to welcome you there.
The Points North team from Condorrat and Cumbernauld Old Parish Churches hold their first Messy Church this coming weekend. Described as ‘a fresh new way of experiencing church’, Messy Church is a couple of hours of fun and mess; a time to come together and enjoy crafts and activities, hear stories from the Bible and share in a time of celebration and dinner.
Messy Church is aimed at people of all ages and interests, those who attend church and those who don’t.
It all kicks off on Sunday 27th January from 4pm in the Forge Community Centre, Ben Lawyers Drive, Balloch/Eastfield.
As in previous years our church will soon be decorated with a beautiful Christmas tree given by a donor who wishes to remain anonymous and the three primary schools in the area will help to decorate the windows.
- Our Carols by Candlelight on 16th December will be a perfect opportunity to come together to sing all our favourite carols. It is always a warm, welcoming service which conveys to all the message of love towards one another.
- The service on 23rd December will be led by our Sunday School and we look forward to the children of the church leading us through the nativity.
- Our Watchnight Service on 24th December starts with community carol singing at 11 pm.
- The service on Christmas Day starts at 10.30 am – please note the earlier time.
The monthly services in the McAuley Hall are to be suspended until nearer to Easter to avoid those who attend (mainly the elderly) having to come out in the worst of the winter weather.
The Guild Christmas Party is on Wednesday 5th December and a warm welcome is extended to everyone wishing to join in the fellowship and fun. There will also be an informal evening on 16th January 2013 to which everyone is welcome.
