Cookie Time at Cumbernauld Old

We would like to invite you all to join us for cookies, tea and coffee after Morning Worship on Sunday 8th September (i.e. this coming Sunday).

Not only will you be able to enjoy delicious homemade cookies, you will be able to purchase a jar with the dry ingredients for various cookies with instructions to bake and enjoy them at home. You might want to buy more than one to enjoy a variety of cookies!

The fundraising group would like to thank everyone who donated jam jars for our September fundraiser.

Worship at Cumbernauld Old takes place in the Parish Church in the Village at 11.00am and everyone is welcome,

‘Smart’ savers at Cumbernauld Old

A huge thank-you to everyone who has already filled and returned their Smarties tubes for the Cumbernauld Old ‘Smart Savers’ fundraiser. This has been running for just a few weeks and has already raised over £160 for church funds.

A collection box is in the church vestibule – you can’t miss it, it’s covered in a Smarties paper!
We’ve added some more tubes of sweets to the box for anyone wishing to enjoy a few more and then fill the empty tube with spare 20p coins. Thanks again!

Easter Cards for sale

Easter is now just around the corner and Cumbernauld Old Parish Church now offers you the opportunity to purchase beautiful hand-made Easter cards for sending to friends and family.

Dorothy Roberts, one of our elders, has made and donated bespoke cards with a variety of designs and verses and they are available to buy in the Church vestibule every Sunday after worship.

Cost is by donation but we would suggest at least a pound. When you see them, I’m sure you’ll agree they are more than worth it. Just pop your donation in the tub provided. Speak to Dorothy or Elizabeth at church any Sunday for more information.

Fundraising update

The fundraising group at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Hamper Raffle and Tombola at the BB Carol Concert and everyone who helped to make or bought the Christmas crafts.

The Santa hats, Christmas puddings and stockings were all beautifully made and will hopefully be back next year.

Thanks to your support we were able to raise £441 for the church from the raffle, tombola and Christmas crafts.

We look forward to your continued support next year both throughout our ongoing Cumbernauld Old Smart Savers Smarties tubes and a variety of events throughout the year. Thanks to eveyone, once again!
