Election of Minister
We are delighted to announce that the congregation has elected Rev Elspeth McKay as our new minister and more than 130 people have since signed the 'Call' to Elspeth too, so thanks for that.

Rev McKay's Induction as minister of Cumbernauld Old has been confirmed for Thursday 3rd August and we look forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into the community. We'll post further information about her induction once that becomes known.

Meanwhile, the worship, witness and work of the church continues, and so we encourage everyone to continue to give their full support to the Interim Moderator, Locum and office-bearers.

Garden Party 3rd June
We are planning to hold a Garden Party in the Manse Grounds on Saturday 3rd June, starting at 11am and finishing around 1pm.  At the moment we are looking for donations for the raffle and as tombola prizes, donations of baking and donations for a picnic hamper (there's a list in the church vestibule and at the Forge). Also, of course, for volunteers to help on the day. In addition, we are asking for volunteers to come along to the manse on the evening of Friday 2nd June, from 7.30pm to help in getting things set up. Bust, most of all, please put Saturday 3rd June in your diaries. Hope to see you there!

Christian Aid Week
Thank-you to everyone from Cumbernauld Old who took part in the annual house-to-house collection for Christian Aid Week last week. It will be a few weeks before we will be able to let you know how much was collected, but if you missed out then you can still donate online here.

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.
