St Mungo’s Backpack Appeal

The Sunday School at St Mungo’s Parish Church, Cumbernauld have suggested a way in which we can support the charity Mary’s Meals (

Their idea is to recycle backpacks that are no longer used but are still in good condition and filling them with useful items which can then be passed on to children in Malawi. This enables them to get the most out of their education, as otherwise they might not be able to come to school with all the basic tools for learning.

We are hoping for any of the following donations to pack: notepads, pencils, crayons, erasers, rulers, sharpeners, pencil cases, towels, shorts or skirts, t-shirts or dresses, flip-flops or sandals, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, small ball.

Please contact this page for any further information or to arrange drop-off either on a Sunday morning at church or outwith our Sunday worship service times. Thank you!

Condorrat Church Girls Brigade, Guild and Sunday School News

The Girls Brigade had a sponsored sleepover in the church hall last Saturday.  They had great fun (but probably little sleep) and monies raised will be divided between the Company and the Sanctuary Refurbishment Project.

On 7th November The Guild had a speaker from ‘Mary’s Meals’, one of their projects.   They have a ‘Fund Raiser’ evening on 21st November in aid of the Guild Projects when ‘Kilsyth Close Harmony’ will be entertaining them.  Tickets are now on sale at £3.

The Minister writes in this month’s Parish News that the Sunday School are planting two trees on Communion Sunday to commemorate the Queen’s Jubilee.  It is hoped that as many folk will stay to watch the ceremony and join us for coffee afterwards.  It is great that the young people of our church have made such an effort  for they bought the trees and have arranged for their planting.  So well done Sunday School.
