This Sunday afternoon (15th December) Cumbernauld Old Parish Church holds its annual Rainbow Service in the Village Hall in The Wynd, starting at 3pm. This service of memorial and remembrance is especially for those who have been bereaved – recently or long ago – and who find the ‘jolly’ side of Christmas painful and who wish to remember loved ones quietly. It will last about 45 minutes and there will be tea and coffee afterwards.
Please note that the service is not suitable for very young children (under three) – we apologise but we are unable to provide a crèche this year.
