Worship for Sunday 18th October

Please join us online for worship from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 18th October. The service is led by our minister, Rev Elspeth McKay and is available here.

You are welcome to join us in worship whenever it is most convenient to you, but why not set aside some time on Sunday morning around 11.00am, when we would usually be gathering for worship in ‘normal’ times. We know that many appreciate the thought of still being together, even though we are limited in how we can meet in person.

Time for Reflection – October 2020

Our next ‘Time for Reflection’ in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be on Sunday 18th October at 11am.
The Time for Reflection will provide an opportunity for people to come and reflect and pray for half an hour in the church building.

In order to ensure as safe an environment as possible, and to comply with Government guidelines, we need to limit the number of people who can attend and so we invite those who wish to attend to let us know in advance.

A letter with details of how our Sunday gatherings will work in practice, including how to ‘book’ your place to attend, has been sent to our members.

We will still have an online worship service on those Sundays when there is a Time for Reflection and details of these will be posted here on our blog and also on the church website.

Worship from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church for Sunday 11th October

We have been inviting people locally to donate items of non-perishable goods and hand them in to the Manse for forwarding to people in need through the local food bank. To say we have been amazed and humbled by the response is an understatement – you can see some of the donations in the video.

If you would like to donate non-perishable goods, e.g dried goods such as rice or pasta, tinned goods, toiletries, etc. this year, please bring them to the Manse in Baronhill and leave them by the front door. (The front door is the one which one enters via the gates in Baronhill, next to the church.) We will take all your donations to our friends at Cornerstone House in the Town Centre next week and they will be distributed through the food bank there. Many thanks to you all!

Harvest Thanksgiving

Next Sunday’s worship, i.e. Sunday 11th October, will be our annual Harvest Festival service. Although it will be an online worship service, arrangements are in place for people to drop off items at the manse for onward delivery to those in need via our friends at Cornerstone House. Details are given at the start of this week’s video, on a separate blog post and from our website. Your contributions of dried or tinned goods would be much appreciated. Thank you!

Harvest Thanksgiving

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is planning to hold our Harvest Thanksgiving service on Sunday 11th October. As with most of our worship services just now, it will take a different form from what we have been used to in the past.

Our worship service will be online, and we’ll post a link nearer the time, but we are still inviting people to donate items of non-perishable goods and hand them in and we will forward them to ensure they are delivered to people in need.

If you can and if you would like to donate non-perishable goods, e.g dried goods such as rice or pasta, tinned goods, toiletries, etc. this year, please bring them to the Manse in Baronhill and leave them by the front door. (The front door is the one which does not face the road! If you go down the little path by the side of the Manse or come in through the gate in the wall, slide the gate in the fence, and leave bags etc under cover by the front door, that would be wonderful, thank-you.)

We will then take the bags over to Cornerstone in the Town Centre and your harvest gifts will be distributed through the food bank there.

If you would like to donate any items, but have no transport, please let us know and we will try to arrange something. Many thanks to you all!
