A reminder that our worship service at Cumbernauld Old this coming Sunday 2nd October will be our annual Harvest Thanksgiving service and we invite those attending, if they can, to bring a donation for our local food bank. See our earlier post for further information. The service will take place at 11.00am in the Parish Church and will be led by Fiona Crawford, our Team Minister. Everyone is welcome and we hope you can join us!
Dandelion Trust Harvest Festival
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is teaming up with Cumbernauld Village Community Council to hold a special Harvest event under the auspices of the Dandelion Trust. This event which was postponed out of respect after the death of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth has now been rescheduled for Saturday 1st October and will take place in the Manse Garden from 11am until 2.30pm and full details are given on our website here.
Once again we at Cumbernauld Old are being invited to support the work of Bethlehem House of Bread at Cornerstone House through our special Harvest Appeal. As we all know we are living in very challenging times. More and more people are struggling, with an increase in families coming forward for help at food banks. On Sunday 2nd October at our Harvest Appeal could you please help by bringing along your donations of any of the following:
Once again everyone at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has been very generous with their donations at last Sunday’s Harvest Thanksgiving service. All these packeted and tinned goods are going to our local Food Bank, Thanks again to everyone who donated.
This Sunday is our Harvest Festival at Cumbernauld Old and, as we won’t be able to worship in the church building, we had asked if people could perhaps drop off some Harvest gifts at the Manse for passing on to our sister Food Bank at Cornerstone House.
Suffice to say, we have been both amazed and humbled by the enormous generosity of the people in our community. Elspeth has taken the gifts received so far and laid them out at the church. The photos below will give you some idea of the astonishing response to our appeal, and it’s still only Thursday!
From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you! For the difference it will make to those who will receive the goods you have donated, many, many thanks!
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.
