1st Cumbernauld Company, The Boys' Brigade
Our Boys' Brigade company holds its Annual Display in the Forge Centre, Balloch on Thursday 28th May at 7.00pm. We invite you to come along and show your support for Alex Edwardson, his team of leaders and helpers, and all the boys of course, as they show-case their skills and talents and enthusiasm to parents and friends alike.
There will be refreshments for sale at the interval, with the proceeds being donated to the work of Christian Aid.
Summer Fete - Saturday 30th May
This year's Summer Fete will be held on Saturday 30th May from 1.30pm - 4.00pm in the Manse grounds and we are looking for a turn-out to match last year's wonderful attendance. Entry will be £1 per adult, with free entry for accompanied children. There will be an additional charge for the tea-room.
There will be a tea-room and a home-baking stall, plants for sale, knitted / soft goods, crafts, a raffle and a tombola stall, and face-painting, henna tattoos, games and activities for children too. Shakespeare’s Kids will provide the entertainment at what we hope will be a fun day out for everyone. Hope you can come along!.
We would also like help during the preceding week to help us get ready - if you can volunteer to help us clean / wipe down tables and chairs on Wednesday 27th and Thursday 28th from 6.30pm and to erect stalls and gazebos on Friday 29th that help would be greatly appreciated.
Cumbernauld Food Banks
Our Session House will be open every Friday from 11am until 12.30pm as a satellite distribution centre for the food-bank based at Cornerstone House. Thanks to all our willing volunteers for a successful start-up. Please note that no food will be stored at the Old Parish Church during the week.
Unfortunately, this looks like a long-term commitment and donations are still very welcome - 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. Now that we have opened up the Session House as a distribution centre we can also accept toiletries as well. 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.
Christian Aid Nepal Earthquake Appeal
Rt Rev John Chalmers, outgoing Moderator of the Church of Scotland, has asked all congregations to consider helping the urgent appeal on behalf of the people of Nepal, following the horrendous earthquakes that have affected eight million people and claimed the lives of over 7,000 people to date.
Please consider donating to the Appeal via the Christian Aid website, or to the DEC Appeal at any Bank or Post Office or by phone (0370 60 60 900). Our retiring offerings at church on 31st May will go to the Appeal.
