Our blog has a new header image. We wanted to have something representing the whole town which we serve and the picture above has been adapted from a mural in the Antonine Shopping Centre in Cumbernauld. Cumar-nan-Alt, from which Cumbernauld gets its name, means ‘meeting of the waters’ in Gaelic.
As well as the Gaelic inscription the mural has two fish to represent the two waters that meet – these have been repositioned in the above image and five gold circles have been added in the shape of a cross, the universal symbol of the Christian church. The circles represent our five Church of Scotland congregations, while the fish and circles combined remind us of the story of Jesus feeding the 5000 with two fish and fives loaves.
The new header image has also been used in our Facebook page.
