Cumbernauld Churches Join in Worship

On Sunday 26th January all five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will come together for a joint service of worship.

The service will take place in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am and will take the form of a ‘Service of Praise’.

There will be two speakers: Prof. David J Smith, founding Head of Music at Northumbria University, and organist at Cumbernauld Old (www.davidjsmith.org.uk); and Iain McLarty, currently Musical Director of the Scottish Chamber Choir and Edinburgh Charity Orchestra, and who develops worship resources for the Church of Scotland, including spearheading a new ‘Church Hymnary 4’ project (www.iainmclarty.co.uk).

Let us proclaim the Lord’s greatness;
let us praise his name together!
(Psalm 34:3)

New Link for Cumbernauld churches

St Mungo’s and Kildrum Parish Churches in Cumbernauld are linking. A Service of Linkage, led by Falkirk Presbytery of the Church of Scotland, will take place at St Mungo’s Parish Church on Thursday 4th April at 7pm.

Members of Presbytery will be in attendance and we encourage a good turnout from both congregations and the wider Cumbernauld community as we look forward to a bright future in partnership.

A tea with home baking will be held in the large hall after the service.

Quiz Night at Kildrum

Kildrum Parish Church is holding a Quiz Night and raffle on Saturday 2nd February at 7.00pm. The money raised from this event will be going towards Natalie Dunn’s trip to Machu Picchu, Peru. She is walking the Inca Trail in October to raise money for GirlGuiding and needs to raise £4000 overall. This event will help towards reaching that goal.

Around half the overall money raised goes to GirlGuiding while the other half goes towards covering the expenses of the trip such as paying doctors to come, to cover accommodation at either end of the trip (the rest is camping on the mountain), the food and the flights.

Teams can be minimum of two people up to eight people maximum. Tickets are £2 per head with tickets available at the door, where you will also be asked how many are in your team. You can also book tickets ahead through Natalie Dunn using Messenger; she will take note of your name and put tickets aside.

Sign-up or find out further information about the event on our Facebook page.
