Our next Toddlers' Praise service will be held on Saturday 25th June in the Parish Church, starting around 11am(-ish). This will be our Summer edition and we hope to see as many young people as possible dressed in bright, summer clothes. We also hope they will bring mum, dad, granny, grandpa and uncles and aunties too! There will be songs and a story, things to collect and something to make and juice and biscuits (with tea or coffee for the grown-ups).
It all adds up to about 30 – 45 minutes of fun, and we hope to see as many people as possible on the day.
Christian Aid Week - Thanks!
We've now counted all the donations received from the house-to-house collection during Christian Aid Week and are delighted to report that the sum raised from our parish was an excellent £1880.70. Of that sum £1110.60 was given under Gift-Aid, so with a basic rate of tax at 20%, this will add a further £222.12 to the total.
A further £250 for Christian Aid Week was raised at our Boys' Brigade annual display, giving a grand total of £2352.82 - a magnificent effort. Well done to all our collectors and donors!
Summer Open Days
As part of the contract for the funding that allowed us to complete Project ROCK we are committed to opening our church building to visitors for three hours (2pm - 5pm) each Sunday in July, August and September. We're currently looking for volunteers to staff one or more of these sessions, so please let us know if you can help - there's a sheet in the church vestibule for names. Thanks!
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.
