There is no longer any need to book in advance, but we ask that you try to maintain a safe distance between yourself / your family group and other worshippers while in the church sanctuary. You will still need to wear a face covering, use the hand sanitiser provided and leave your contact details for Test & Protect.

198 – Let us build a house where love can dwell

Rev Elspeth McKay
Last Monday, the minister intimated to the Kirk Session that she has received a call from Paisley Abbey and so will be leaving Cumbernauld Old at the end of October.
Elspeth said, “We will all very much miss our many friends in Cumbernauld, but I am reassured that you aren’t that far away down the M8!”
The minister will be on holiday from 4 – 11 September and if anyone needs urgent pastoral assistance during that time, please call the manse telephone number, where there will be an answering machine message giving details of whom to contact in her absence. Our deacon will be on annual leave from 6 – 19 September.
