Sunday 31st May – Pentecost

141123_042 Hamilton Window (east aisle)

Our worship service for Sunday 31st May (Pentecost) at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be a bit different from usual. The Moderator of the General Assembly has produced a Sunday Morning service especially for Pentecost and is encouraging all Churches to watch the video instead of a locally-recorded service, so the Church can worship together at Pentecost.

The video will be available from 10am on Sunday on the Church of Scotland website at www.churchofscotland.org.uk or you can watch it on Cumbernauld Old’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/cumbernauldold

Normal service will be resumed next week!

Remember that on Wednesday afternoons you can join us for a ‘Coffee and Chat’ meet-up at 3pm using Zoom. You don’t need to have a computer to join in as you can use your telephone to join in the fun as well as join with video. If you would like to join in, please contact Elspeth (01236 728853) for the details of how to take part. Again, please let your friends and family know – the more, the merrier! You will need to bring your own coffee / tea and homebakes though!

Songs of Praise Fund-raiser

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church intends to hold an online fund-raising event on Friday 26th June at 7.30pm.

Instead of the event we had planned to hold in the church we will now be hosting an online Summer Songs Of Praise and invite you to join in, singing along to some favourite hymns and making a donation via the ‘Donate online’ button on the Church website: www.cumbernauldold.org.uk

We hope you will be able to join us in singing some favourite hymns and support us in raising some funds for the church during these difficult times. Details of how to join will be posted nearer the time.

Please pass on news of this event to family and friends by mail, text or phone and let’s all encourage one another to join in and sing some summer songs of praise.

Worship over the phone

Since the start of the current ‘lockdown’ Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has produced a recorded worship service each week that people can view online every Sunday, or when it is most convenient. Links to these are posted on our blog and also our website.

The minister has now set up a system for those who do not have access to the internet, but do have access to a telephone. Every week she will record a short service which can be accessed by calling 01236 809237.

The plan is to upload a new worship service every Saturday. There will be a short message and then the service will begin. The call should cost no more than a usual local call. Please let anyone you think would benefit from such a broadcast know about this new service. Thanks!
