On Sunday 26th January all five Church of Scotland congregations in Cumbernauld will come together for a joint service of worship.
The service will take place in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am and will take the form of a ‘Service of Praise’.
There will be two speakers: Prof. David J Smith, founding Head of Music at Northumbria University, and organist at Cumbernauld Old (www.davidjsmith.org.uk); and Iain McLarty, currently Musical Director of the Scottish Chamber Choir and Edinburgh Charity Orchestra, and who develops worship resources for the Church of Scotland, including spearheading a new ‘Church Hymnary 4’ project (www.iainmclarty.co.uk).
“Let us proclaim the Lord’s greatness;
let us praise his name together!”

The Sunday School at St Mungo’s Parish Church, Cumbernauld have suggested a way in which we can support the charity Mary’s Meals (www.marysmeals.org.uk)
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!
