Worship at Cumbernauld Old
We are now into the season of Advent and worship services from Cumbernauld Old continue weekly online.
The service for Sunday 6th December is available at
As with all our worship services, this service is available to everyone, so please feel free to share the link with any family or friends.

For everything that's going on at Cumbernauld Old, please follow our blog, Facebook page or Twitter feed, from where you can continue to interact with us during the current restrictions.

Advent and Christmas 2020
We have produced an online Advent Calendar and each day from 1st December to 24th December there will be a post on our Facebook page with a Bible reading and reflection. On some days we will have art, music or video as well. If you are not on Facebook, you can access the Advent Calendar here on our website.

Later in mid-December, we will bring you 'Journey to Bethlehem,' an interactive Advent trail through the Parish telling the Christmas story which can be done individually at any time. There will be posters and a trail to follow. The posters will have QR codes which will link to relevant Bible readings and downloadable activities for younger people. Think of a 'treasure trail' with the treasure being the Christmas story! See more here.

Our next 'Time for Reflection’ in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be on Sunday 20th December at 11am.
The Time for Reflection provides an opportunity for people to come and reflect and pray for half an hour in the church building. In order to ensure as safe an environment as possible, we need to limit the number of people who can attend and so we would invite those who wish to attend to let us know in advance. A letter with details of how our Sunday gatherings will work in practice, including how to 'book' your place to attend, has been sent to our members.

We will also be having our usual Nativity / Gift Service and Rainbow Service, as well as a Watchnight Service and Christmas Day Worship all of which will be online this year. Links will be posted on 13th December for the Nativity / Gift Service and the Rainbow Service, on 24th December for the Watchnight service and 25th December for Christmas Day Worship.

We have updated our What's On page with the dates and will also post the links here on our website nearer the time. The details, and much more, are also in an Advent Newsletter sent to our members.

So whether you are celebrating Christmas with family or friends or on your own we hope you will be able to join us.
