A Warm Welcome

170803_101 Elspeth's Induction cakeRev Elspeth McKay was inducted as the new minister of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Thursday 3rd August at a service in the Parish Church. That was followed by a social event in the Village Hall when we all had a chance to ‘meet & greet’ her more informally.

One of the memorable features of the evening was a wonderful cake – the wording around the edges reads “Cumbernauld Old Parish Church welcomes Reverend Elspeth McKay” – but we had enjoyed the sandwiches, sausage rolls, scones and cake so much the cake was left over until our service on Sunday!170803_102 Elspeth cuts the Induction cake

We are delighted to welcome Elspeth and her family into our church and community and hope they feel very much at home here.

We wish to place on record our thanks to our Interim Moderator for the past two years, Rev Grace Saunders, and also to our Locum, Rev Marion Perry who served us so conscientiously during her time with us. We wish them both every blessing for the future.
