DEC Ukraine Appeal

The members of the craft group would like to thank everyone who supported us with our recent Crafts for Ukraine fundraising, which raised £280 which was sent to The Disasters Emergency Committee Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal by one of our members and with added Gift Aid came to the wonderful total of £350.

Singing Group

Our proposed new singing group has attracted a lot of attention, so thanks to everyone who has signed up or expressed an interest. There’s always room for more people to join, so please let us know below if you would like to find out more. Lynn is now working out the details for a possible September start and has set up a Twitter page @SingCumbernauld which we’ll update with news when it becomes available. Why not give it a wee follow?

Book Club

Hot on the heels of our planned Singing Group (see above) Cumbernauld Old is also hoping to start a book group – the intention is to get people reading and talking about books they enjoy with others, and perhaps reading something they would never have tried. The plan at the moment is that the group will meet monthly and the next book of the month will be chosen by members each month. Drop us a line if you are interested. There is also a sign-up sheet in the church vestibule.

Worship on Sunday 19th June

Post-worship teas and coffees

Now that restrictions have been relaxed once again, the Kirk Session has agreed that we should reintroduce serving tea and coffee in the Session House after the service. So many people have missed the opportunity for a cuppa and catch up, so it will be good to see normal service resumed. If you are willing to be part of a tea rota in order than we can get this up-and-running, please speak to Elizabeth Snedden any Sunday. Hopefully your turn would only come around every five or six weeks – the more volunteers the better!

Singing Group

We are delighted with the level of interest being shown in our proposed Singing Group. There is no better way of cheering yourself up and lifting your spirits than joining with others to sing. You don’t need to have any musical experience, have a strong voice, be able to read music. It’s just the chance to meet together and have fun singing a variety of popular songs. A lot of details have still to be sorted out, but in the meantime if you are interested please add your name to the poster in the church vestibule or drop us a line here or on our Facebook page.
