Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society has kindly volunteered to provide an evening of entertainment as a fundraiser event for Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. We hope this will take place in early November – more details to follow.
In the meantime, in the interest of fostering positive local relationships, the Church Fundraising Group is keen to support this fantastic local theatre group. The Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society will be performing a range of songs at their show ‘West End at the Westerwood‘ on Saturday 13th (already sold out) and Sunday 14th October at the Westerwood Hotel, Cumbernauld. We have been offered the opportunity of a block booking for the 2.30pm matinee performance on Sunday 14th October at a reduced price of £10 per person.
This will give you a chance to see and hear the Society in action before they come to perform at our fundraiser, when the programme of songs will be different. If you wish to book a place for the Westerwood show on 14th October, please get in touch and we’ll pass on your details to our fundraising team.

Please come along and join them if you can.
As in previous years our church will soon be decorated with a beautiful Christmas tree given by a donor who wishes to remain anonymous and the three primary schools in the area will help to decorate the windows.
- Our Carols by Candlelight on 16th December will be a perfect opportunity to come together to sing all our favourite carols. It is always a warm, welcoming service which conveys to all the message of love towards one another.
- The service on 23rd December will be led by our Sunday School and we look forward to the children of the church leading us through the nativity.
- Our Watchnight Service on 24th December starts with community carol singing at 11 pm.
- The service on Christmas Day starts at 10.30 am – please note the earlier time.
The monthly services in the McAuley Hall are to be suspended until nearer to Easter to avoid those who attend (mainly the elderly) having to come out in the worst of the winter weather.
The Guild Christmas Party is on Wednesday 5th December and a warm welcome is extended to everyone wishing to join in the fellowship and fun. There will also be an informal evening on 16th January 2013 to which everyone is welcome.
