Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is a member of Scotland's Churches Trust
|World Day of Prayer - Friday 7th March
This year's World Day of Prayer service will take place in Cornerstone House, 1 Esk Walk, Cumbernauld Town Centre on Friday 7th March at 7.00pm. This year's theme is 'Streams in the Desert' and the material has been prepared by the women of Egypt. This ecumenical service is an important annual event in the life of the church in Cumbernauld and we hope as many people as possible will be able to come along on the night.
Music Concert - Tuesday 11th March
There will be a concert in the Parish Church on Tuesday 11th March at 7.30pm. The concert will feature young musicians from St Mary's Music School in Edinburgh and has been organised by one of our members as a fund-raiser for church funds. Some of the young people have played previously at our summer fair and we have been told that the music on the night will be a selection to suit all tastes. We would be delighted if as many people as possible would come along, support the young musicians and make the evening a success.
Tickets will be available at church next Sunday, and also on the night, for a suggested donation of £5.
Cumbernauld Churches Together are holding a series of weekly Lent Reflections at the Church of the Holy Name, Fleming Road, Seafar staring on Thursday 13th March. Join us for tea and coffee from 7pm with the meeting proper starting at 7.30pm. All welcome!
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, ravioli, stew, peas, beans, etc) and we hope to have a full list available soon, as well as a box for donated items at both the Parish Church and Forge Community Centre from Sunday 9th March.
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.
Kindle support for South African students
Our World Mission Partners, Graham & Sandra Duncan, have told us about a new way in which we can support students in South Africa. Through our Mission Circle, they have been able to put money towards Kindle eReaders for students and help them download textbooks they would otherwise be unable to access. All is explained in our church newsletter.
