Remember, Remember, the 8th of November!
OK, the above rhyme isn’t quite right, but today seems as good a time as any to remind you that our next Cumbernauld Points North Messy Church is this coming Sunday afternoon.
We’ll be looking at the final part of the Bible story of Joseph and how he has a happy reunion with his brothers. There will be activities and crafts, songs and stories and we’ll finish by sharing a meal together, The fun starts at 3pm in the hall at Condorrat Parish Church, 62 Main Road, Condorrat, G67 4DZ
Woohoo!! I hope everyone has had a great time over the summer holidays and that you are now looking forward to coming back to Messy Church. I know we are!
Our next Points North Messy Church will be on Sunday 13th September from 3.00-5.00pm, but please note we’ve moved: our new location will be the Condorrat Parish Church hall. There is parking available and if anyone needs transport feel free to leave a message and we can organise for you to be collected… we don’t want anyone to miss out!
As usual we will have all our crafts, activities, time for celebration, games and a sharing of food together (made by our very talented chef Lorna)
Everyone is welcome to join us and if you can lend a hand even better… the more the merrier.

The next Cumbernauld Points North Messy Church will be on Sunday 8th February, i.e. this coming Sunday, when we’ll be looking at the theme of ‘friendship’.
There will be lots of crafts and activities linked to that theme, and we’ll hear about the Bible story of a group of people who wanted to help their sick friend so much that they climbed up onto the roof of a house and lowered him down to the room where Jesus was so he could heal him! After a time for games we’ll sit down to share a meal together. The fun starts at the Forge Community Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND at 3pm and we’ll finish around 5pm. All welcome!
Messy Church is back on Sunday 11 May – the fun starts at 3pm in the Forge Centre in Ben Lawers Drive, Balloch, G68 9ND.
Messy Church is a couple of hours of crafts, activities, songs and stories and is suitable for all the family.
The theme for this month is all about ‘homes’ and ‘places to live’, which is the theme for this year’s Christian Aid Week, as Sunday also marks the start of that. We might also be telling the story of the Three Little Piggies!
Everyone welcome: hope you can join us.
Come along and join the Points North Messy Church team at the Forge Community Centre in Balloch this Sunday 8 December when we will be looking forward to Christmas. The celebration will remind everyone of the Christmas Story and we’ll be sharing Christmas songs. Crafts will include making a nativity scene, a Messy Church Christmas Tree, angels, reindeer, Christmas cards and decorated baubles. This month’s Messy Church will end with some party food to help us look forward to celebrating Christmas. The Messy Church Team are looking forward to seeing you all there on Sunday. The fun starts at 4pm.
Points North Messy Church is back after the summer break on Sunday 8th September. The fun starts at 4:00pm in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch.
This month’s theme is “Love Your World” and the crafts will reflect some of the wonderful things in our world: insects, birds, plants and animals, all part of God’s creation.
We hope you will come along and join us at the Forge for two hours of fun and fellowship and the chance to meet new friends.
