ROCK - Restoration of Old Cumbernauld Kirk
Our church building and Session House are currently closed for restoration and will remain so for a few weeks more. In the meantime our 10.15am service on Sunday mornings will take place in the Village Hall in The Wynd, G67 2ST, while our 11.45am service will continue as normal in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch, G68 9ND.
We hope to return into our buildings at some point during December and we'll update the kirk website with the details as they become available.
Services during December
Details of worship services during Advent and Christmas are now available on our Christmas 2013 page. The worship this coming Sunday 8th December will incorporate our annual Gift Services, and we invite those attending to bring along a gift, wrapped and marked 'boy' or 'girl' and the age of the person for whom the gift would be suitable. All our gifts will be passed to the Social Work Department based in Easterhouse for distribution.
Also, next Sunday sees a time of Christmas fun at our next Messy Church. This starts at 4pm in the Forge Centre, Balloch and is a time for people of all ages to come together, enjoy crafts and activities, sing, hear stories from the Bible and share some food together. Messy Church is open to all, and the Points North Messy Church team will be delighted to see you there.
In the evening of Sunday 8th December, Cumbernauld Churches Together are holding their annual Festival of Light service (otherwise known as Carols by Candlelight). The service will be held at Sacred Heart Church, Kyle Road, Kildrum, starting at 7.30pm. Please come along and enjoy what promises to be a wonderful evening of praise and fellowship.
Our special Christmas edition of Toddlers' Praise takes place on Saturday 7th December in the Roadside Hall, starting at 11am(-ish!). This is for all the boys and girls who have been baptised over the past few years (and, of course, their mums, dads, grandmas and grandpas, aunts, uncles and anyone else they wish to bring along!) It will be a short time of fun and games, songs and stories as we look forward to celebrating Jesus' birthday and afterwards there will be tea, coffee and a bit of cake for everyone. All (ages) welcome!
A huge THANK-YOU to everyone who helped our Christmas Fair such a success. It’s impossible to name everyone, but the list includes those who came along on the Friday night to help get things set up, everyone who donated items for the stalls, tearoom, prizes, etc., all those who staffed the stalls on the day and those helped clear up afterwards, those who made and served the teas, Santa Claus (of course!) who gave up some time from his busy schedule to pay us a visit, the people who did all the planning, phoning and cajoling behind the scenes and, finally, everyone who came along and supported the event with their time and their money.
It was a real team effort by so many people. We are delighted to say that around £2012 was raised for Church funds and, once again, we extend our thanks to everyone who contributed in whatever way.
You can still take part in our Festive Quiz - last year you were all raking through your biscuit tins to find the names of favourite brands; this year you have the perfect excuse to hover in the sweetie aisle as this year's quiz is all about sweets, past and present. Quiz sheets are available at both worship centres, priced £1.
Our latest church newsletter has just been published and the main articles can also be viewed from our website's Magazine page. STOP PRESS - since our church newsletter was published we received a newsletter from our Mission Partners in South Africa. You can read that here.
