One World Week logo 2018_1One World Week 2018 runs from 21-28 October. The theme for 2018 is ‘The World is Changing – How about us?’

Cumbernauld will be recognising this year’s One World Week in a worship service to be held in the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar on Sunday 28th October at 3.00pm to which all are welcome.

“The aim of One World Week is to increase understanding of global issues and empowering people to make a difference to help tackle these.  The particular aims of OWW 2018 are to draw attention to the difficulties humanity faces, enable people to see alternatives which inspire them to make changes in their own lives and support joint actions which, acting individually and together will achieve human prosperity in a flourishing web of life.”

Moderator’s New Year message

“Dream with me of a world where children do not go to bed hungry or in fear; where the lonely and the elderly are cared for with dignity and respect; where the poor and vulnerable are not the prey of those with few scruples.

The words are those of the Moderator of the General Assembly in her New Year Message for 2014. Read the full text here.

The Tax Justice Bus will be in Glasgow’s George Square on Tuesday 2 October with Story-telling events from 1.30pm.
