Please join us for worship at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 12th December, the Third Sunday of Advent. The service will take place in church at the usual time of 11.00am and will be led by Rev Allan Loudon. All welcome!
The service will also be ‘live-streamed’ on our Facebook page for those who are unable to attend. Please note that, because it will be ‘live’, you will need to watch at 11.00am as it won’t remain on Facebook after the service has ended.
Some people have been asking about our Rainbow Service, our service for those who have been bereaved, which has in the past taken place around mid-December. The Kirk Session has decided that, for various reasons, not least the ongoing Covid restrictions, to postpone our service until the Spring. We haven’t yet fixed a date, but we’ll send out invitations and post details online nearer the time.
On Sunday 12th December at 2.00pm we will post a short reflective meditation and prayer on our Facebook page and then at 2.30pm a recorded service called ‘When Christmas Hurts’ from Milton of Campsie Parish Church. We invite you to take a little time out to reflect upon Christmas in quietness and gentleness.
Christmas Gift Service
Our annual gift service took place on Sunday 5th December and, once again, we were bowled over by the generosity of our congregation. Our friends at the Bethlehem House of Bread Food Bank posted on social media: “Thank you to our partners in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church who donated all these toys, plus £400 in gift vouchers and £70 in cash for the Christmas Giving on the 23rd of December. Working together to ensure every child who comes along will have a great Christmas. Praise the Lord!”
