Church Newsletter – May 2023

The latest edition of the quarterly magazine of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is now available online.

In her minister’s letter, Fiona reminds us of the Five Marks of Mission and reflects how they are not just about telling people about Jesus but also living as Jesus’ disciples – removing barriers, filling in the trenches that divide, erasing lines and borders rather than drawing them.

The magazine also takes a look back at our Coronation lunch, news from our Mission in Action, Fairtrade, Craft and Fundraising groups, some good news about our Foodbank restarting, and there’s news from our Mission Partners in South Africa. All that and much more!

Feel free to download your copy from the link below and read at your leisure. Enjoy!

Cumbernauld Churches Together

The Cumbernauld Churches Together group is looking for new members. Each of the churches in the group has been asked to have two representatives instead of one if possible. This is to ensure that if someone was unable to attend one of the meetings, there would be another representative there.

You do not need to be a Kirk Session or Board member to attend, so if you are interested or need any further information, please speak to Fiona or to Sandra Moffat at church any Sunday. Thanks!

Coronation Lunch – Thanks!

We want to thank all those involved in last week’s Coronation Lunch in the Manse garden: to those who set it up, tidied it away and served the tea; to the wonderful bakers who put on such a tremendous spread of cakes and biscuits; and to those of you who took time to come across and enjoy the occasion. 

Special thanks to David Swan for providing the music, Lynn Strang for leading the singers in Arria Voices in a musical tribute to the four UK nations and to Anne Walker, our own Depute Lord Lieutenant, for opening the proceedings.

With the bakers’ permission we sold left over cakes and that raised £86 for Christian Aid and the Food Bank.

It was a great day with the community coming together and enjoying a special time in glorious sunshine. Thanks everyone.
