Election of Minister at Cumbernauld Old

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to announce that the congregation has elected Rev Elspeth McKay as their new minister.

A date for the induction of Rev McKay to Cumbernauld Old has still to be set, but is likely to be towards the end of July / start of August.  The congregation is looking forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into the community and will post further information about her induction once that becomes known.

Meanwhile, the worship, witness and work of the church continues, and so we encourage everyone to continue to give their full support to the Interim Moderator, Locum and office-bearers.

Big Day for Cumbernauld Old

On Sunday 30th April, Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will welcome Rev Elspeth McKay to preach as ‘sole nominee’ for the vacant charge.

Rev Elspeth McKay has been recommended by the Nominating Committee elected by the congregation and, following our worship service on Sunday 30th, there will be a secret ballot of our members and adherents present at the service on whether or not she should become our new minister.

This service will take place in the Parish Church at 11.00am and replaces our usual two services at 10.15am and 11.45am (the latter usually at the Forge Centre in Balloch).

The ballot, of those on the electoral register of the church who are also present on the day, will follow immediately after the service and the result announced shortly thereafter.

So, whether you are a regular attender, come to our church occasionally or haven’t been for a while, we look forward to welcoming you to Cumbernauld Old on Sunday 30th April at 11.00am for what is the next chapter in our congregation’s life.

Condorrat Anniversary Service and Lunch

On the 14th April The Rev Grace Saunders will have been Minister of Condorrat Parish Church for one year.  She writes ‘I am constantly thankful and give praise to God for bringing me here.‘  As our Session Clerk stated in this month’s Parish News, Grace is already getting to be well known and well thought of in the Condorrat community and, indeed, Cumbernauld itself. We all wish her God’s blessing in her continuing work.

Grace is planning to celebrate the anniversary with a Soup and Sandwich lunch after morning Service this Sunday 15th April.  She intends to chat with as many people as she can and hopes it will be a great time of fellowship.
