Next Sunday, 6th October, marks the annual Harvest Thanksgiving service at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church.
We are inviting those attending the service to bring a gift of some tinned food or dried foodstuffs, such as rice or pasta, which will be passed on to the local foodbank co-ordinated by our friends and partners at Cornerstone House. Thank-you!
Sunday’s worship will also incorporate the annual Dedication Service for the 1st Cumbernauld Boys’ Brigade Company, and we look forward to welcoming the Boys, officers and helpers, as well as parents, friends and supporters of the Company to our service.
Our morning worship service starts at 11.00am and everyone is very welcome.
A very big ‘thank-you’ to everyone who contributed gifts for the Harvest table at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church this morning. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
All our donations will be bagged and boxed and taken to the local food bank, where they will be shared with those who are in need.
Both worship services at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 15th October will be Harvest Thanksgiving services, when we will reflect on God’s goodness and provision.
We invite those attending to bring along gifts to be donated to our local food bank and would welcome donations of tinned goods (mince, stew, curry, hot-dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, etc.) and / or tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits.
The Food Bank in the Village is open in the Session House of the Parish Church each Friday from 11am – 12.30pm and at Cornerstone House in the Town Centre on Thursday evenings from 6pm – 8pm.
The Harvest Thanksgiving Services at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be on Sunday 2nd October at 10.15am in the Parish Church in the Village and 11.45am in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch.
As we give thanks for God’s goodness to us, we are reminded that Harvest is also a time for sharing our gifts and so we invite those attending either of these services, or our Harvest-themed Toddlers’ Praise Service on Saturday 1st October, to bring a donation for the local food bank.
We would be delighted to receive donations of tinned goods (mince, stew, curry, hot-dogs, chopped ham/pork, spaghetti, macaroni cheese, ravioli, peas, beans, potatoes, tuna, fruit and custard, etc.) plus tea-bags, long-life (UHT) milk, breakfast cereal and biscuits. We can also accept donations of toiletries suitable for adults or children. Thank-you in advance! We look forward to seeing you at church on Saturday or Sunday.
