Village Care Home

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be starting to hold worship services in the Village Care Home on the last Sunday of the month, starting on Sunday 25th November at 3.00pm.

This will be a short service, no more than half-an-hour, with readings, a short reflection and three hymns. It would be great to see other people there, so please come along and join us!

Elspeth has also arranged a Carol Singing night at the Care Home on Thursday 13th December. There may also be some festive poems and readings too. So please put the dates in your diary – we look forward to seeing you there.

Poppy Display Latest

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to express once again our thanks to everyone who knitted and crocheted poppies over the past weeks and months. Every one was beautiful and a real work of art.

Thanks also to all the ladies who came along to sew them onto the panels of netting. Each session was full of chat and laughter, not to mention tea and biscuits. It was a real opportunity to get to know others and we even had volunteers from other churches in the town and several village residents.

Our work is now done and everything is ready to hand over to Anne Louise and Julian for the final installation. This will be carried out over the next few days in time for Remembrance Sunday.

Lots of people have said that they would like to see the finished work but for some reason won’t be able to come on the 11th November, therefore we have decided to open the church on Wednesday 14th and Thursday 15th from 7.00pm to 9.00pm both evenings to allow visitors to see the result of all our hard hard work.

Thanks also to the congregation for the interest you have shown in the project and the support that you have given us over the last few months.

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’

Boys’ Brigade Dedication Service

Next Sunday, 28th October, will be the annual Rededication Service for the 1st Cumbernauld Company of the Boys’ Brigade.

This will form part of the morning worship service at 11am in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church and everyone, including families and friends of the Boys and leaders, will be made most welcome.

As it’s also the last Sunday of the month, we’ll have Fairtrade goods on sale after the service.

More poppies needed!

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has been thrilled by the number of knitted poppies handed in so far for our Remembrance project. However, although we have received about 9,000 poppies to date, we still need more.

We are currently in the process of attaching the poppies to the cargo netting and we don’t quite have enough to complete our display. So we’re asking whether people could please just do a few more and hand them in. We can then finish the sewing-on of the poppies.

Also, for those who have been knitting the poppies and sewing them on, we are having a film crew from Reporting Scotland coming to the Church on Friday 26th October at 2pm. They’re doing a feature on WW1 remembrance. All those who have knitted, crocheted or sewed the poppies are invited to come along to the Church, knitting needles and crochet hooks in hand, so we have a really good turn out for the film crew.

Thank you!
