Reopening of the Church

The Trustees of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church have agreed to open the Church for a time of private prayer (‘Time for Reflection’) on Sunday 20th September at 11am for half an hour and every third Sunday of the month thereafter.

The Property Convener and members of the Property Team have worked hard in conjunction with Falkirk Presbytery to ensure that the risks have been minimised and all safeguards are in place to make worshipping as safe as possible. As with any activity, the risk of infection is real and present. A letter with all the relevant details will be sent to members and adherents soon.

The Time for Reflection will not be a service in the ‘traditional’ sense; it will be a time for people to come and reflect and pray for half an hour in the church building. Because of the current restrictions, we need to limit the number of people who can attend and so a booking system will be in operation.

If you would like to attend the church for the Time for Reflection, on this or subsequent months, and wish to book a place, please telephone Anne Murphy, on 01236 726875 or 07719 290042, giving your name, those in your household who will be attending with you (if applicable), the date you wish to attend and your telephone number for ‘test and protect’.

Finally, a reminder that a letter with all the details of the steps we have taken and how our Sunday gatherings will work in practice will be sent to our members shortly, and also that we will continue to provide online services every week for the foreseeable future.
Take care. Stay safe!

Christmas Cards 2020

The Fundraising Team at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church are exploring the possibility of creating our own bespoke Christmas cards for sale, and therefore raising much-needed funds for the Church. We have found a company online which can design and print bespoke charity Christmas cards at a reasonable cost.

However, before we commit to spending money on ordering these Christmas cards, we would like to establish whether there is sufficient support for this venture to ensure that we would actually make a profit, i.e. raise some funds, from doing so. Please, therefore, let us know if you would be willing to purchase such cards if they were available.

The cards we are considering would have a front cover with a pretty picture of our church, probably a snowy, wintry scene. We already have a number of photos from which we could choose. The cards would come in packs of ten. The smaller cards are 120mm square and would cost £3 per pack of ten. There are larger cards, 150mm square, and would cost £3.50 per pack of ten. Please note, though, that to make a worthwhile profit we would have to sell 100 packs. So please give this your fullest consideration.

Please, then, let us know as soon as possible if you would be interested in purchasing Cumbernauld Old Parish Church Christmas cards, and if possible, indicate how many packs you might want.

Once we have received everyone’s replies we will be able to gauge whether this would be a worthwhile venture. We are limited in the number of people we can contact directly, so if you have any friends or family who may also wish to purchase Christmas cards from us, please have a chat with them and include that in your reply. Thank-you for your time and consideration.
