Good morning everyone!
Just in case you missed the flurry (❄sorry!) of activity on our Facebook page and Twitter feed yesterday evening, we can advise that the worship services at Abronhill, Condorrat, Kildrum and St Mungo’s Parish Churches tomorrow have been cancelled due to the outdoor conditions and continuing severe weather alerts.
As it stands, the Communion service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church at 11am in the Village is still on. We’ll let you know on Facebook and Twitter should there be a change.

Please take care and do not travel if it seems unsafe to do so.
