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.

Easter Appeal thanks

180325_025 Easter Egg Collection, Cumbernauld Old Parish ChurchCumbernauld Old Parish Church would like to thank everyone who supported our annual Easter Egg Appeal. There was a huge response to our appeal for people to donate chocolate Easter Eggs for distribution to needy children through our local food bank. A whole car-load of eggs was collected and it was both wonderful and humbling to see such a generous response from our congregation.

Thanks, too, to everyone who hand-knitted ‘chicks’ over the last few weeks and those who provided the small chocolate cream- or caramel-filled eggs to go inside them. They were an amazing ‘hit’ with everyone who saw them and supply barely matched demand! By Easter Day we reckon that about £87 was raised by this fantastic idea.
