Worship on Sunday 2nd January 2022

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, January 2015

You are warmly welcomed to join us for worship at Cumbernauld Old on Sunday 2nd January 2022, the Second Sunday of Christmas. The service will take place in the Parish Church at the usual time of 11.00am and will be led by Ivar Struthers, one of our elders and a Reader in the Church of Scotland. We hope you can join us!

There’s no need to book in advance, but please be aware that the current guidelines are that everyone attending should take a Lateral Flow Test beforehand and, while at church, wear a face covering (unless exempt), leave their contact details for Test and Protect, use the hand sanitiser provided and keep a safe distance between yourself / your family group and other worshippers while in the church sanctuary.

We encourage everyone to use all areas of the sanctuary, including the east and west aisles, and follow the one-way system when arriving and leaving. Thank-you for your help and understanding!

We are having a few problems with our ‘live-stream’ at the moment, so please bear with us while we get these technical issues resolved.

Used Stamp Appeal

As we have done in previous years, Cumbernauld Old is collecting used postage stamps for the annual Church of Scotland Used Stamps Appeal. This year the Stamp Project proceeds will benefit the Women’s Development Centre (WDC) in Kandy, Sri Lanka, which runs a project to support women and girls who have been victims of rape and sexual violence.

The WDC gives these women somewhere to stay, supports them in caring for their children, helps them return to education if they wish, and trains them in skills they can use to make a living when they leave.

Please pass your used stamps to Ivar Struthers before the end of January and he’ll make sure they’re passed on. Thank-you for your support!
