As we have done in the past two years, Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is selling Christmas cards in aid of church funds. The theme of the cards this year is “All is Calm, All is Bright” (see picture below).
The cards come in packs of 10 and the cost remains the same as last year at £4 per pack. The message inside each card reads, “Wishing you peace at Christmas“.
If you would like to buy a pack please speak to any of the fund-raising team after morning worship any Sunday. Thank you!
Tickets are still available for the musical evening to be held at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Thursday 10th November. The entertainment will start at 7.30pm and be provided by the Cumbernauld Musical Theatre Society who will be singing a variety of well-known songs from musical theatre.
Entry to the event will be by reserved ticket, but the charge will simply be by voluntary donation to Church funds at the door on the night. To reserve your ticket for the event please see or phone Caroline Edwardson (01236 724933) or speak to any member of the Fundraising group. It promises to be an enjoyable and uplifting evening for all.

Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has recently relaunched our ‘Smart Savers’ project.
Everyone is invited to help themselves to a tube of Smarties from the Church vestibule, enjoy the sweeties and then return the tube filled with 20p coins.
Members have continued to hand in tubes all through lockdown and your donations over the last few years have raised hundreds of pounds for church funds. The sweeties have been good too! Thank-you for your continuing support.
The fundraising team at Cumbernauld Old would like to thank everyone who helped us to raise a grand total of £868.60 for Church funds from sales of Easter cards and crafts.
Thank-you, too, to everyone who brought along their collected small change to worship on Sunday 8th May – our ‘coffee jars’ collection raised a magnificent £337.27 for the DEC Ukraine Appeal. In addition, our wee table with crafts and pennants for Ukraine has so far raised another £117 and more items have recently become available. Thanks to all the knitters in the congregation and the Craft Group for their beautiful work.
Everyone is warmly welcomed to join us for worship on Sunday 15th May. Our service will be held in the Parish Church at 11.00am and will be led this week by Ivar Struthers, one of our elders and a Reader with the Church of Scotland. We hope you can join us!
We also plan to livestream this service on our Facebook page at 11am on Sunday if you can’t be with us in person.
Please note that our Deacon, Valerie Cuthbertson DCS, will be on annual leave until 22nd May. During this period any member of the congregation in need of pastoral support should contact their Elder for help and advice. Should anyone require further information or contact details please speak to the Interim Moderator.
Christian Aid Week 2022
Christian Aid Week 2022 runs from Sunday 15th until Saturday 21st May. Cumbernauld Old has a fantastic record supporting the vital work of Christian Aid over many years. If you’re able to support them again this year, you can donate online using our ‘e-envelope‘. As always, thank you for your generous support.
Love lies at the heart of the Christian gospel and Christian Aid have produced a video about how love gives people like Janet the courage to stand strong against drought and hunger.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to be hosting a charity concert in aid of Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) on Tuesday 17th May at 7.30pm. The Sounds of Spring concert has been organised by local pianist David Swan and a quartet of young up-and-coming musicians who will play a mix of their own compositions and a variety of classical, folk and jazz music inspired by and in celebration of spring. Expect the sounds of birdsong and April showers, stories of new life, and vivid rushes of spring colour, heard through the sounds of brass, harps, keyboards and guitars. We are delighted to host David and his fellow musicians for such a worthy cause and anyone who wishes to come along on Tuesday 17th would be most welcome. Entry is by donation. Teas and coffees will be available for donation to church funds.
The knitters at Cumbernauld Old are busy again and this time are making a variety of Items for Easter – chickens, rabbits, ducks, hedgehogs, mice, bumblebees and ladybirds, all containing either a Cadbury’s Creme Egg® or a Cadbury’s Caramel Egg®.

If you would like to order one (or more!) please let us know here or by phoning Elizabeth on (01236) 726451. Your support makes a difference to Cumbernauld Old, so thank-you very much!
