Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is a member of Scotland's Churches Trust
Election of Nominating Committee
On Sunday 21st February there will be a joint Worship Service in the Parish Church at the Village at 11am. After worship there will be a Congregational Meeting to elect the Nominating Committee which is the next step in the vacancy process. (Note: the Nominating Committee is what the church formerly called the Vacancy Committee.)
Further information about the election has been posted on our blog.
Both the joint service in Church and the Congregational Meeting will be led by our Interim Moderator, Reverend Grace Saunders. Please note that this 11am worship service replaces our usual two services at 10.15am and 11.45am, and so there will be no service at Balloch on 21 February. We would encourage as many members as possible to attend worship and the meeting.
Cumbernauld Food Banks
The Food Bank in the Village is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church.
We continue to look for donations, and especially tinned goods (mince, stew, curry, hot-dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, etc.) plus tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits. Now that we are open in the Session House each week we can also accept the donation of toiletries. There is a box for donations in the church vestibule and at worship in The Forge.
Fill a suitcase for Malawi
The daughters of one of our members are going to Malawi next year as part of their school programme. They have been allocated an extra suitcase allowance and tasked with filling it with baby clothes to take out with them. We were asked if we would be willing to help the girls fill that suitcase and the response so far has been tremendous.
We've been knitting baby jackets, cardigans, hats and bootees of all sorts of patterns and colours - and we'll still take more. Wool is available in the vestibule of the church and at the back of the Hall at Balloch, so help yourself and get knitting!. In the meantime, if you have any questions, just speak to Elizabeth (726451) or Ivy (728063).
