A short prayer for the 4th Sunday of Lent

God of darkness and light
Open our eyes to your justice.
 
God of goodness and glory
Open our minds to your wisdom.

God of mercy and kindness
Open our hearts to your love 

Shield us God
With your crook
And your staff
Bring us safely home.

Guide us God
With your truth
And your goodness
Bring us safely home.

Encourage us God
With your oil
And your kindness
Bring us safely home.

Shepherd us God
Walk with us
Always
Bring us safely home.

Letter from the Minister

Dear Friends

I wanted to be in touch with you all to let you know what is happening regarding life in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church.

As most of you will know by now, we received notification from the Church of Scotland that we are to cease gathering for worship immediately and that also applies to all activities that bring people together.  We are very saddened by this but you can still attend ‘virtual worship’ which will be recorded and if you would like to receive this, please let the Admin Group know and they can send you a weekly email with a link to the service.  Their email is Cumbernauld_old@outlook.com.

We will also be starting up a Facebook page for Cumbernauld Old and the plan is that there will be a short thought for the day posted there along with other ideas that will help us stay connected.  Please do link up with this Facebook page and post ideas and worship resources. There will also be regular updates to this blog.

Please do let us know any way that we can help, from a weekly telephone call just to check in to running errands.  We have volunteers who are ready and willing to help.  If you are speaking to anyone who might not be able to read this, please do let them know.

Please do all keep safe and if there is anything that we can do, please do let us know.  Feel free to contact your Elder or me directly.  The Manse number is 01236 728853.

We are living through very uncertain and upsetting times.  Please never feel alone, the Lord our God is with us through all of this and beyond.

With much love

 

Elspeth
