The Church of Scotland congregations in the Presbytery of Falkirk (which includes the Cumbernauld churches) are holding an event over three days at the start of June called Pop-Up Pentecost.
On the the first two days there will be a Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate Shopping Centre in Falkirk and on the Saturday there will be activities for all the family in a marquee at Falkirk Trinity Church in the town centre (inside the church if the weather’s bad). Entry to all events is free and we’ve created a Facebook event page for further details.
Thursday 1 June – 12 to 4 – Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate
Friday 2 June – 11 to 3 – Prayer Labyrinth in the Howgate
Saturday 3 June – 11 to 3 – Pop-Up Pentecost, with crafts, games, music and stories, at Falkirk Trinity Church
Woohoo!! I hope everyone has had a great time over the summer holidays and that you are now looking forward to coming back to Messy Church. I know we are!
Our next Points North Messy Church will be on Sunday 13th September from 3.00-5.00pm, but please note we’ve moved: our new location will be the Condorrat Parish Church hall. There is parking available and if anyone needs transport feel free to leave a message and we can organise for you to be collected… we don’t want anyone to miss out!
As usual we will have all our crafts, activities, time for celebration, games and a sharing of food together (made by our very talented chef Lorna)
Everyone is welcome to join us and if you can lend a hand even better… the more the merrier.

He was a big powerful soldier, but he had a problem. Lots of people had no success when they tried to help him, but there was one little girl who might just have the answer.
But did the soldier have the courage to ask her?
And just what was the little girl’s secret?
Find out more at Messy Church on Sunday 14th June, at 3pm in the Forge Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND.
We’ll have crafts, Bible stories, songs, activities and games for people of all ages and ending with a meal together. Hope you can join us!

The next Cumbernauld Points North Messy Church will be on Sunday 8th February, i.e. this coming Sunday, when we’ll be looking at the theme of ‘friendship’.
There will be lots of crafts and activities linked to that theme, and we’ll hear about the Bible story of a group of people who wanted to help their sick friend so much that they climbed up onto the roof of a house and lowered him down to the room where Jesus was so he could heal him! After a time for games we’ll sit down to share a meal together. The fun starts at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND at 3pm and we’ll finish around 5pm. All welcome!
On Saturday 26th October Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be holding our Harvest Toddlers’ Praise in the Roadside Hall in Cumbernauld Village, starting at 11am(-ish).

There will also be juice, biscuits, tea and coffee.
