Latest News: updated on 6th October 2015
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is a member of Scotland's Churches Trust
Our next Points North Messy Church will be held a week later than originally planned. It will now be on Sunday 18th October from 3pm - 5pm in Condorrat Parish Church halls.
We'll be continuing our look at the story of Joseph. We'll hear how his jealous brothers got their revenge and how Joseph ended up being stuck down a well before being sold to a passing group of spice-traders on their way to Egypt. Never a dull moment for our Joe!
Webb Ivory catalogues
The new Webb Ivory catalogues for 2015 are now in stock. They are bigger and better with a wide range of cards, paper, gifts, and lots more. The church will get at least 25% from each item bought, so just one pack of cards or a roll of wrapping paper will make a difference. Please contact Wilma Shepherd or Elizabeth Snedden for more details.
Fill a suitcase for Malawi
Calling all knitters again! You all did such a great job in producing beautiful garments for our “Life for African Mothers Project” that we want you to get those needles busy again. The daughters of one of our members are going to Malawi next year as part of their school programme. They have been allocated an extra suitcase allowance and tasked with filling it with baby clothes to take out with them.
When Helen Urquhart heard about the tremendous success of our previous project, she asked if we would be willing to help the girls fill that suitcase. Baby jackets, cardigans, hats and bootees of any pattern or colour would be much appreciated. Wool will be available shortly – keep an eye on the vestibule (or at the back of the Hall at Balloch). In the meantime, if you have any questions, just speak to Elizabeth (726451) or Ivy (728063).
Cumbernauld Food Banks
Our Session House is open every Friday from 11am until 12.30pm as a satellite distribution centre for the food-bank based at Cornerstone House.
Thank-you for your donations to date and, unfortunately as this looks like a long-term commitment, donations are still very welcome - mainly of tinned goods, please: e.g. mince, stew, curry, hot dogs, chopped ham / pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, plus tea bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits.
With the Session House open weekly as a distribution centre we can also accept toiletries as well. Please continue to use the box for donated items in the Church vestibule and you can also leave items when we worship at the Forge in Balloch.
