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.
