Songs from the Musicals

Tickets are still available for the musical evening to be held at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Thursday 10th November. The entertainment will start at 7.30pm and be provided by the Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society who will be singing a variety of well-known songs from musical theatre.

Entry to the event will be by reserved ticket, but the charge will simply be by voluntary donation to Church funds at the door on the night.

It promises to be an enjoyable and uplifting evening for all.

Book Group meeting for October

The next meeting of the Book Group at Cumbernauld Old will be on Tuesday 4th October at 2pm in the Session House next to the Church.

We will be discussing last month’s book choice, ‘The Midnight Library’ by Matt Haig, and deciding what book we will read this month. Anyone wishing to join us will be made most welcome.

The group is supported by our local library service and so we will have copies of books specifically for lending to book groups; there is no need to buy any of the books selected, unless of course you enjoy the book so much that you want a copy for your own library.

Community Singing Group

Part Two* of the new things happening in Cumbernauld Old this week is a new Community Singing Group which will start on Wednesday 7th September at 7pm.
This will meet in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church every Wednesday from 7 – 8pm and all are welcome, whether you can sing – or even think you can sing – or not!

No experience necessary, you don’t even need to be able to read music! It promises to be fun, so please come along and see what you think.

There’s a Twitter page @SingCumbernauld which we’ll try to keep updated with all our news. Please give us a wee follow there! And see you on Wednesday evening…

(*If you missed Part One, then that was our Book Group which started on Tuesday 6th September at 2.00pm and which will meet at the Church on the first Tuesday of every month.)

One Enchanted Evening!

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church was delighted to host the Bruadar Duo last week as part of their recent series of concerts and it’s safe to say they held us spell-bound by their music. Many thanks to Kieran (guitar) and Lynn (flute) for their wonderful playing of contemporary music from South America and the UK. It really was an evening to remember!

Here’s a selection of photos from what was a fantastic concert:

Bruadar Duo in Concert

This is part of a series of concerts which includes venues such as Greyfriars Kirk and St Mary’ Episcopal Cathedral In Edinburgh. St Mary’s Parish Church Haddington, Hill of Tarvit Mansion House, and more.

Entry is free, but donations will be appreciated. Don’t miss it!

We are starting a Book Group – starting on Tuesday 6th September at 2pm in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church, the group will meet monthly thereafter and each new book will be chosen by the members of the group.

Coffee and Chat

Fairtrade teapotAs we are now again on a stay-at-home lockdown, we thought it would be a good idea to restart our Coffee and Chat* sessions via Zoom and telephone. We might not be able to meet up in person but we hope these informal get-togethers will allow us some kind of relaxed social contact from the comfort of our own homes.
(* or beverage of your own choice!)

This time, Anne Morrison is going to host the sessions (thanks Anne!) and the plan is to meet up online or by phone on Wednesdays at 3pm, starting on the 10th February. You don’t need to join us every week, feel free to drop in or out whenever it suits you.

If you would like a link to the Coffee and Chat, please let us know and we will send you the details. Everyone is very welcome and you can join either online or by telephone.
