The next Toddlers’ Praise Service will be held in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Saturday 25th March, starting around 11am. There will be songs, stories and activities on an Easter theme for youngsters and their families, and we invite those attending – of whatever age! – to wear bright, Easter colours on the day and make the church sparkle with light. Hope to see you there!
We invite those attending worship on Sunday 26th March, to bring along a small chocolate Easter Egg. These will be collected after the service and distributed by our friends at Cornerstone to children who otherwise might miss out.
This year’s World Day of Prayer service in Cumbernauld will take place on Friday 3rd March at 7.30pm in the Church Hall of Our Lady & St Helen’s Church, Achray Road, Condorrat.
The service this year has been written by the Christian women of the Philippines and is based on Jesus’ story of the workers in the vineyard who all receive the same pay, prompting the question “Am I Being Unfair to You?” (Matthew 20: 1-16)
The Day of Prayer is for everyone.
You will all be made most welcome at the service.
Cumbernauld Old holds its annual ‘Rainbow Service’ in the Parish Church on Sunday 18th December at 3pm.
This short service is for those who have been bereaved, either recently or some time ago, and find the ‘jolly’ side of Christmas painful or tinged with sadness. We invite you to come along for a service of worship, remembrance and reflection.
During the service you will have the opportunity to tie a coloured ribbon to the Rainbow Tree in memory of a loved one, as well as take one home as a keepsake. Please note this service is not suitable for young children.
The Rainbow Tree will remain in church until Easter Day, when all the ribbons will be carefully removed, ironed and made into something beautiful.

We’re all starting to think about going on holiday – and this stunning weather helps! This month in J.A.F.A. Church we’re thinking about “The holiday of a lifetime”.
Where do you think our destination might be? Come along and join in the fun – make your own passport, join in with the team game to pack a suitcase, look up atlas and road maps to plan your journey, or build a 3D jigsaw of the world.
No holiday by the seaside would be complete without fish and chips – so guess what we’re having for tea this month?
The fun takes place from 4 -6pm on Sunday 26th June at Abronhill Parish Church. See you then!
