Latest News: updated on 8th September 2014
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is a member of Scotland's Churches Trust
We'll soon be making a temporary change to the way we post our news: rather than updating our website each week, we'll be putting our church news on our blog page. If you want, you can sign up there for email updates so you don't miss anything that's going on, or you can just visit the page whenever you wish. And, of course, we'll keep the link here so you don't have to worry about where to find us. The plan is to resume our usual website updates in November. Meanwhile, our latest news still appears below.
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!
Messy Church returns!
Next Sunday afternoon (14th September) sees the return of Messy Church at the Forge Centre, Balloch after our summer break. The fun starts at 3pm and this month we'll be looking at part of the story of Moses - the baby in the bullrushes - and there will be songs, stories, crafts, activities and finishing with a meal together. Messy Church is for everyone and we look forward to seeing you there.
Food Banks - an update
Thank you for your continued support for the Food Banks in Cumbernauld. Donations are still needed, and are 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. 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.
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.
