Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is opening its doors to visitors once again this summer. Volunteers will be available every Sunday from 2pm to 5pm in July, August and September to welcome visitors and show them around our historic church building in the Village. Hope you can pop by and say hello!
We’ll have different opening arrangements during the weekend of Doors Open Days (8 / 9 September) and will post these nearer the time.
Remember, too, that the Church is open for worship every Sunday at 10.15am and everyone is welcome to attend any of our services. Worship during July and August also takes place each Sunday at the Forge Community Centre in Balloch at 11.45am.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is planning to open its doors to visitors every Sunday afternoon, between 2pm and 5pm, during July, August and the early part of September.
A team of members will be available to show people round and to answer any questions they may have. Books charting the history of the church from the 13th Century onwards will also be available for sale.
The church is situated in Baronhill, Cumbernauld Village and a warm welcome awaits.
Cumbernauld Supporting Refugees, Cornerstone Church and our local MP and MSP are working together to collect clothes and footwear for refugees arriving in Europe. Anyone wishing to donate clothes and/or footwear can drop them off at Cornerstone Church in the Town Centre on Wednesday 25th November between 4pm and 7pm. Should this not be convenient, donations can also be dropped off at the MP’s Constituency Office, 13 The Wynd, Cumbernauld Village during office hours.
All donations are being transported to Serbia by Glasgow The Caring City.

One of the conditions of the funding grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for Project ROCK is that Cumbernauld Old Parish Church must open to the public for a number of hours in addition to our weekly worship services.
To meet this requirement Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be open on Sunday afternoons in July, August and September from 2pm to 5pm and longer on the weekend of Doors Open Days (12 & 13 September). Information leaflets about the Church building will be available for visitors as well as a warm welcome (whatever the weather!)
