Special Events & Activities

Cumbernauld Old has a number of activities that take place monthly, quarterly or annually. The dates for these vary, so please keep an eye on our 'What's On' page for up-to-date details.

The list below should give you an idea of some of activities in which we are involved.

Sacrament of Holy Communion
Celebrated on the first Sunday of March, June, September and December at services in the Parish Church at 11.00am and 6.30pm.
You don't need a special invitation card to attend, nor do you need to be a member of the Church of Scotland or any other church - the Lord's Supper is open to all. At the evening service non-alcoholic wine is used. 
The Rainbow Service
Held annually on a Sunday afternoon in mid-December for families who have been bereaved or suffered loss, and who find the 'jolly' side of Christmas difficult.
During the service, worshippers are invited to tie a ribbon to a bare tree in memory of a loved one. As the ribbons are tied to the tree it becomes a colourful reminder of hope in the darkness.
The tree remains in the church until Easter (or until the clocks go forward the following spring). Every individual ribbon is then untied and kept until it is sewn into a permanent reminder, such as a banner, etc.
Cumbernauld Churches Together
Cumbernauld Old is a member of Cumbernauld Churches Together and takes part in Bible Studies and reflections around the times of Advent and Easter as well as services held during the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. We also participate in the World Day of Prayer, the Good Friday 'Walk of Witness' and the annual 'Festival of Light service at Christmas-time.
We also have our own worship services on Maundy Thursday (the Thursday before Easter) and Good Friday.
