Please come and join us in our celebration of Christmas with an evening of Christmas Carols and Songs on Thursday 10th December at 7.30pm in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch, Cumbernauld, G68 9ND.
Enjoy an evening of friendship and fun, especially as tea / coffee and Christmas pies are included in the ticket price of £2.00. Other Christmas goodies will also be available!
Tickets from any Boys’ Brigade leader on a Thursday evening, from Church on a Sunday, or call Alex Edwardson (01236) 724933. This is a fund-raising event on behalf of the 1st Cumbernauld Boys’ Brigade and Cumbernauld Old Parish Church.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church’s Christmas Fair has had a revamp this year and will be appearing in its new guise of Crafts, Coffee and Christmas on Saturday 21st November from 10:00am till 12:30pm in the Village Hall, The Wynd.
As well as the traditional Hamper Raffle, Tombola, Raffle, Soft Goods, Baking and Ladies’ Group Mystery Bags there will be craft stalls including jewellery and prints, cards, fabric toys and goods, candles, personalised decorations and glassware. A great opportunity to get some Christmas shopping done!
Those of you with a sweet tooth can indulge in a treat from the chocolate fountain and grab a bargain from Thorntons including Advent Calendars, stocking fillers etc. all at special lower prices.
Entry includes coffee and refreshments: Adults £2 Children free.
Donations for Hampers, Tombola and the raffle can be handed in any time from now on in the vestibule in the church at the Village or the back of the hall at Balloch. Baking can be handed in to the District Hall from 9am on 21st November.
Due to the revamp we do not require anything other than baking and donations to raffle, hamper and tombola.

One condition of the funding we received from the Heritage Lottery Fund for Project ROCK is that we must open the Church to the public (apart from our worship services). We hope to do this by opening our doors on Sunday afternoons in July, August and September from 2pm to 5pm and longer on the Doors Open Days weekend (12/13 September).
We therefore need a number of willing volunteers to show visitors around the Church – the more the better – so if you can spare one or more afternoons in an excellent cause, please speak to Iain Ogilvie or any office bearer over the next week or two. We will provide enough information to be getting in with and you will not be expected to know the full history of the Church – just be a friendly face!
