Food Banks - an update
Thank you for your generous donations to date for the Food Banks in Cumbernauld. Unfortunately, this will be a long-term commitment and we would still welcome your donations - 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. 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.
World Record Attempt
An attempt for the World Record for the longest ever non-stop game of 5-a-side football will be made from 9pm on Thursday 11th September to 6pm on Sunday 14th September at Broadwood Stadium. Featuring representatives from a number of local Boys' Brigade companies, but mostly from our own 1st Cumbernauld Company, this is a charity event in aid of Boys' Brigade funds. We hope that members of the congregation, and as many other people as possible, will drop by and offer their support to the young men attempting this incredible challenge. Find out more on their Facebook page - and, yes, donations will be most welcome!
Doors Open Days - 13/14 September
One of the conditions of a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to help with Project ROCK was that we open up our Church building to visitors beyond the usual church services on Sunday mornings, To that end, we'll be participating in North Lanarkshire's contribution to Doors Open Days over the weekend on 13/14 September. The church will be open from 12 noon to 4.00pm each day. We look forward to greeting you!
Village Community Council
Cumbernauld Village Community Council is planning a Family Fun Night to raise awareness of the work of CVAC (Cumbernauld Village Action for the Community). This is for the whole family and there will be games, quizzes, dancing, bingo, and more. It takes place in Cumbernauld Bowling Club on Friday 19th September at 7.30pm. Tickets available from Elizabeth Snedden (01236) 726451.
Webb Ivory Catalogues
Last year, sales from Webb Ivory catalogues raised over £200 for Church funds and the new books for 2014 are now available. If you wish to have a look at one, please see Wilma Shepherd or Elizabeth Snedden at church any Sunday. These catalogues are a quick and easy way of buying cards and gifts while, at the same time, raising money for the church.
Cumbernauld Old is holding a Craft Fair for Church funds on Friday 24th October from 7pm - 9pm. If anyone would like to host a stall at the Fair or would like further information, please contact Anne Morrison on (01236) 721496
