Worship for Easter Day

Christ is RisenHappy Easter!

Christ is Risen! He is Risen Indeed!

Welcome to the worship service from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church for Easter Day.

We are doing something different with the hymns, two of which are in four-part harmony with organ accompaniment, but with only two of us singing / playing. The wonders of technology!

The intimations at the beginning of the service give details about our plans to re-open the Church for worship starting on Sunday 25th April. We will continue to provide worship online for those who are unable to join us in person. There is also information for those who have been saving their small change in ‘coffee jars’ or wherever; we’ll collect them soon. And there’s also an update about our Easter fund-raiser. More about that below.
But, first, let us worship God together…

Easter fund-raiser

Easter fund-raiser 2021Thank-you so much to everyone who bought one of our knitted novelties: wee bobble hats in the shape of bees, ducks, chickens, sheep, ladybirds, etc. and each containing a small chocolate Easter egg.

We are thrilled to report that just short of £600 was raised for church funds from your generosity and the support of all our knitters and fund-raisers. A marvellous effort by all and greatly appreciated.

We are now half-way through Holy Week. Our reflection today considers Jesus’ betrayal as well as a beautiful hymn sung by King’s College in Cambridge.

While you are welcome to watch this video at any time, we suggest you take a few moments out in the evening to watch and reflect.

Worship for Sunday 28th March (Palm / Passion Sunday)

Welcome to our online worship service from Cumbernauld Old Parish Church for Palm / Passion Sunday 2021. Worship is led by our minister, Rev Elspeth McKay and is available here or from the video link below.

You are more than welcome to watch and join in our worship at any time, but why not set aside some time around 11am on Sunday morning, which is our usual time of worship when we are able to gather in person and many of us still keep as our time together, even although we may be in different locations for now.

You may be aware that churches are now able to reopen for public worship, subject to government guidelines about social distancing, etc. We will let you know when we plan to open our doors for Sunday worship ‘in person’ on our website and our social media channels, so please watch this space for further news.

Easter Egg donations

A massive thank you to everyone who has donated Easter eggs for the House of Bread food bank at Cornerstone. Everyone has been so generous and we are genuinely humbled by the number of donations received.

There is still time to drop eggs at the Manse as we will be taking them to Cornerstone on Sunday afternoon. Likewise, if you wish to make a cash donation to the food bank, please pop the money in an envelope, seal it and drop it through the Manse letterbox. We’ll take the monetary donations up to Cornerstone when we are dropping off the eggs. Thank you once more!
