Christian Aid Week 2021

Christian Aid Week 2021Christian Aid Week 2021 runs from 10 – 16 May. Although we won’t be able to do our usual fund-raising for Christian Aid Week at Cumbernauld Old this year – no house-to-house collections or envelopes left on pews or available to hand onto neighbours – we have instead created an e-giving page, a place where you can donate to Christian Aid under the ‘banner’ of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church.
Just click here or on the ‘envelope’ logo on the right to find out more and to donate.
Thank you very much for your support. It is greatly appreciated!

Christian Aid Week 2021

Christian Aid Week 2021 e-envelope

Christian Aid Week 2021 runs from 10 – 16 May.

We won’t be able to do our usual fund-raising for Christian Aid Week at Cumbernauld Old this year, no house-to-house collections or envelopes left on pews or available to hand onto neighbours, but just as the work of Christian Aid hasn’t stopped throughout the Covid-19 pandemic neither has the need for its work to be supported. In fact, that need becomes greater as more people are pushed into hardship

In the words of Christian Aid themselves:

This climate crisis hurts us all. But people living in poverty fight the worst of it every day.
From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means people in the poorest communities are struggling to survive without a reliable source of water.
Your gift could help a community build an earth dam, so when the rains do come, they will have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand long drought or relentless rainstorms.
Every envelope. Every gift. Every challenge can change lives.

No envelope? No problem!
What we have done is create an e-giving page, a place where you can donate to Christian Aid under the ‘banner’ of Cumbernauld Old Parish Church. Just click here or on the logo below to find out more and to donate. Thank you very much for your support. It is greatly appreciated!

The service is now available online and can be viewed at https://vimeo.com/415988588. You can watch it any time you like, but why not join us at 11am on Sunday morning when we can all watch it together. We might be in several locations but we can still be together in one place.

As with all our worship services this Sunday’s service is available to all, so please feel free to share with any family or friends. Please also check out our Facebook page for all the latest news from Cumbernauld Old.

For more information about Christian Aid Week 2020, and to donate if you wish, please visit their website. Thank you!

Christian Aid Week update

Christian Aid Week 2016 Thank-YouWe’ve now counted all the donations received from the house-to-house collection in Cumbernauld Old Parish during Christian Aid Week and are delighted to report that the sum raised was an excellent £1880.70.

But the good news doesn’t end there: of that sum £1110.60 was given under Gift-Aid, so with a basic rate of tax at 20%, this will add a further £222.12 to the total.

Plus, a further £250 for Christian Aid Week was raised at our Boys’ Brigade annual display, giving a grand total of £2352.82 – a magnificent effort. Well done to all our collectors and donors!

Christian Aid Week 2016

Christian Aid Week 2016Easter is past, the children are back in school and it’s now time to think about Christian Aid week, which runs from 15th to 21st May.

As always, we are looking for people to help with the door to door collection. If you didn’t receive an envelope last year, it probably means that no one in your immediate area was delivering envelopes – could you help this year? If you were one of the trusty band of volunteers last year, we hope you’ll help again this year.

The money raised makes such a difference to some of the poorest people in the world. Please give it some thought and if you are able to help, please contact Liz Dalling (727000) or Lesley Littlejohn (729083).

Supporting Christian Aid at Christmas

Instead of sending personal Christmas cards to your friends in the congregation at Balloch this year, why not put a single card on the special board in the hall at the Forge and donate the money you would have spent on cards and postage to Christian Aid?

A box for donations will be placed beside the board and, remember, all funds raised for aid charities are being doubled by the UK Government at the moment. A simple idea which will make a difference to those in need.
