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.

As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.

Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.

Festival of Light 2016

The annual Festival of Light service will be held this year in Sacred Heart Church in Kildrum on Sunday 4 December at 7.30 pm and everyone is cordially invited to come along and join this ecumenical Carol Service.

This festival of Christmas carols and Bible readings has been going for 26 years and is organised by a committee drawn from many Cumbernauld churches. This year’s festival will feature Cumbernauld Choir and the children from Carbrain Primary School as well as festival stalwarts, the Croy Silver Band. The readings will be given by Andrew Longye, Minister at the Free Church, Stuart McDonald MP, Liz Dalling and Ivar Struthers from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church of Scotland. The reflection this year will be given by Deacon Kenny McGeachie of St Lucy’s in Abronhill.

As well as bringing congregations from all of Cumbernauld’s Churches together in a Christmas celebration, the Festival Of Light is also a fundraising event for Sacred Heart’s Third World Group and for Christian Aid, whose Christmas Appeal this year coincidentally is entitled Light the Way for people fleeing violence this Christmas.

Please come along and lend your support to this wonderful Christmas service. It really is a very special evening. We attach a poster you may wish to copy and circulate. But most of all, please come along and show your support on Sunday 4th December.
