Journey to Bethlehem

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church invites you to Journey to Bethlehem with us.
Follow the Christmas story in a combination of a treasure hunt and a self-guided trail which you can do in your own time.

Located around Cumbernauld Village are twelve numbered posters, each with a picture representing part of the story of Christmas and a line from the Bible relating to that picture.
There’s a candle, crown, musical instruments, Bethlehem, angel, Mary, journey, scroll, shepherds, stable, wise men and star.
See how many you can find!
(Hint: the first poster is at the Church gate and the rest of the hint-list can be found at the end of this post.)

Each poster also has a QR code which you can scan on your mobile phone.
That will bring you to a page on our church website where you can read the Bible passage that goes with that picture. Click or tap on the picture on the website page to download a puzzle, quiz, colouring-in, craft, etc. all linked to the Christmas story and which younger people can do at home.
The posters are numbered 1 – 12 and that will take you through the Christmas story in sequence if you want to follow that, but you are more than welcome to scan the code on any of the posters you come across.

We hope you enjoy our new take on the Christmas story!

If you can’t get down to the Village you can also follow the ‘trail’ from the comfort of your own home by the links on our website.

Poster locations: Church gate, Purple Paws, the bakery, the florist, Cullen and Easton, Spar, the barber’s shop, Patterson and Hughes, the chemist, the Village Hall, Scragg, and the Village Noticeboard at the War Memorial.
