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.

Carols by Candlelight – Coming Soon!

Sadly, because of current restrictions, we are not able to hold our Carols by Candlelight fundraiser in the Church this year. However, we have instead produced an online one packed full of carols and festive readings. You will be able to access it from either our Facebook page or the Church website from Friday 18th December and it can be watched at any time after then.

There will be details at the end of the video about how to make a donation. Watch out for the link – it promises to be an enjoyable event for everyone!

A Sparkling Lullaby

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to offer a HUGE vote of thanks to Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society for their wonderful fund-raising concert ‘Lullaby of Broadway‘ at the Forge Community Centre last Thursday.

It was one of these evenings where we were close to running out of superlatives: fabulous, magnificent, sparkling, fantastic, brilliant, and talented were only some of the words used to express our delight at the superb evening they presented for us.

The evening was a total sell-out and every single person there went home with a song (or two) in their hearts. So, once more, many, many thanks and ‘Haste Ye Back’

Any men who would like to join us will be made most welcome. (We will be car-sharing, so places will be limited by the transport available.)
