Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is a member of Scotland's Churches Trust
The Men’s Group Annual Burns' Supper will be held on Wednesday 21 January in Cumbernauld Bowling Club and everyone is invited to come along to this extremely popular social event in the Church calendar.
Cumbernauld Burns Club will provide their usual, entertaining dialogue, masterminded by Callum Cormack, our Chairman for the evening. Our own Janet Graham and David Boyle will provide excellent musical interludes and Anne Walker will provide her usual wit in defence of the ladies. You will also be served a first class meal! All in all, a great night, not to be missed.
Tickets are now available from any member of the Men’s Group, modestly priced at £7 per head. The time on the evening is 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Hope to see you there.
Week of Prayer for Christian Unity
The 2015 Week of Prayer for Christian Unity will be held between Sunday 18th and Sunday 25th January.
Here in Cumbernauld there will be daily reflections at 12 noon from Monday 19th to Friday 23rd, followed by a soup lunch, in the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar. We've added some background information about this year's theme on our blog.
The Rainbow Tree
Our annual Rainbow Service was held on 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 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.
