Sacrament of Holy Communion
We celebrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion in the Parish Church this coming Sunday 4th December.
The morning service will be at 11.00am and will replace our usual two services at 10.15am and 11.45am.
A further celebration of Holy Communion will take place in the Parish Church at 6.00pm (please note earlier-than-usual time) and non-alcoholic wine will be used at this service.

Festival of Light 2016
The annual Festival of Light Service will be held in Sacred Heart Church in Kildrum on Sunday 4th December at 7.30pm and everyone is invited to come along and join in this ecumenical Carol Service. As well as bringing together congregations from different denominations in Cumbernauld, The Festival of Light is also a fund-raising evening for the Third World Group of Sacred Heart Church and Christian Aid, whose Christmas Appeal this year is coincidentally called Light the Way for people fleeing violence this Christmas. Further details of this special service can be found on our blog.

Handbags Wanted!
From now until 4th December Cumbernauld Old will be collecting for the Lanarkshire Baby Bank Christmas Handbag Appeal. We are inviting people to donate a handbag and / or toiletries and other items that some mothers might struggle to buy, and hand them into church either at the Village or at the Forge. There is more information about this appeal on our blog.

'On the Road' with the Church of Scotland
Representatives from the Church of Scotland are going ‘on the road’ this autumn to 15 venues spread across the length and breadth of Scotland (and also to London) to hear the views of local people on the future of the church.
The event in Falkirk Presbytery will be at St Andrew's Church, Bo'ness on Wednesday 30th November from 6.30pm to 9,00pm. Find out more about these roadshows from the Church of Scotland website.

Cumbernauld Food Banks
The Food Bank in the Village is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church.

We continue to look for donations, and especially tinned goods (mince, stew, curry, hot-dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, etc.) plus tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits. Now that we are open in the Session House each week we can also accept the donation of toiletries. There is a box for donations in the church vestibule and at worship in The Forge.
