Christmas at Cumbernauld Old
Part of our 10.15am worship next Sunday 21st December will be led by our J Team with their Nativity Play. We look forward once more to seeing and hearing about the birth of the Christ-child as told by some of the young people in our church family. There will also be a service at 11.45am in the Forge Centre, Balloch as usual.
On Wednesday 24th December there will be a Christmas Eve Service in the Forge Centre, Balloch at 7.30pm and a Watchnight Service in the Parish Church at 11.30pm.
On Thursday 25th December we invite you to our Christmas Day service in the Parish Church at 10.30am.
The Rainbow Tree
Our annual Rainbow Service was on the afternoon of Sunday 14th December.
During the service we invited those attending to tie a coloured ribbon to a branch of a tree in memory of someone who had died and whom they wished to remember. What had started out as bare branches soon became a riot of colour as more and more ribbons were added, each one remembering someone special.
The Rainbow Tree will remain in church, with another at the Forge Centre in Balloch, through the winter months and you are welcome to add ribbons to it any Sunday before or after our worship services. On Easter Day 2015 the ribbons will be removed, ironed and used to make something beautiful for the sanctuary or for other people who have been bereaved.
Thank-you to everyone who brought along a wrapped gift to our Gift Services on Sunday 14th December. We were quite astonished by the amount of gifts we received and the generosity of those who donated them. The gifts will be collected by our friends from the Social Work Department in Easterhouse and given to the children of families for whom Christmas is a difficult time. Thank-you once more.
Cumbernauld Churches Together hold the last of their Advent Meditations on Wednesday 17th December. These Meditations are open to all and are held in the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar starting with tea / coffee at 7.00pm and finishing around 9pm.
