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.
