The angel said to the women: "Do not be afraid. You are looking for Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He is not here; he has been raised, just as he said."
Christ is Risen! He is risen indeed!
Wishing you all a joyful Easter, and may you be filled with love, peace and hope.
Congratulations to our Ladies' Circle, who meet at the Forge Centre in Balloch and who are celebrating their
30th Anniversary this month with a meal at the Westerwood Hotel. Since we have been worshipping in Balloch for only 32 years, the Ladies' Circle have been a large part of our church community in that area for nearly all of that time. Congratulations again!
Food Banks - request for help
As you may know, there are now two Food Banks in Cumbernauld. At its recent meeting the Kirk Session agreed that we should encourage the congregation to help our local community by contributing to these banks, run by the Salvation Army and Cornerstone Christian Fellowship. Most of the goods needed are tinned items (e.g. mince, stew, curry, hot dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, ravioli, macaroni cheese, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard) plus tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits. There is a box for donated items at both the Parish Church and Forge Community Centre, and that will remain as long as necessary.
Summer Fete - Saturday 31st May
After a gap last year due to Project ROCK, our Summer Fete returns to the Manse grounds on Saturday 31st May.
We hope to have the usual stalls and games as well as our ever-popular tea-room. Gates open at 1.30pm.
The planning team are working hard behind the scenes and further information will be posted over the next few weeks. Please mark the date in your diaries!
Loaves, Fishes, and Lots More
This is the title of the new Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Cookbook containing a selection of favourite recipes suggested by members of the congregation including starters, mains and, of course, plenty of sweets! It’s another great fund-raising idea for Cumbernauld Old from Elizabeth Snedden and Anne Morrison and it’s a snip at £3, so please get your copy now from either of them.
