Food Banks - request for help
As you may know, there are now two Food Banks in Cumbernauld. At its recent meeting the Kirk Session agreed that we should encourage the congregation to help our local community by contributing to these banks, run by the Salvation Army and Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. Most of the goods needed are tinned items (e.g. mince, stew, curry, hot dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, ravioli, macaroni cheese, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard) plus tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits. There is a box for donated items at both the Parish Church and Forge Community Centre, and that will remain as long as necessary.
Summer Fete - Saturday 31st May
After a gap last year due to Project ROCK, our Summer Fete returns to the Manse grounds on Saturday 31st May.
We hope to have the usual stalls and games as well as our ever-popular tea-room. Gates open at 1.30pm.
The planning team are working hard behind the scenes and further information will be posted over the next few weeks. Please mark the date in your diaries!
Loaves, Fishes, and Lots More
This is the title of the new Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Cookbook containing a selection of favourite recipes suggested by members of the congregation including starters, mains and, of course, plenty of sweets! It’s another great fund-raising idea for Cumbernauld Old from Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison and it’s a snip at £3, so please get your copy now from either of them.
