Easter at Cumbernauld Old

Thanks to everyone who brought along chocolate Easter Eggs to our services over the weekend of Palm Sunday. These will be distributed by the Social Work Department based in Glasgow to children and families who otherwise wouldn’t have one.

The Sacrament of Holy Communion will be celebrated on Thursday 2nd April (Maundy Thursday) at 7.30pm in the Parish Church.

The Good Friday Walk of Witness, arranged by Cumbernauld Churches Together, will be on Friday 3rd April, starting at 11am from Sacred Heart Church (please be there at 10.45am). We plan to take our usual route through the Town Centre via Kildrum Parish Church, Church of the Holy Name, Cornerstone Church and finishing at Cumbernauld United Reformed Church, where there will be a cup of tea or coffee around 1.00pm.

The Parish Church will also be open for our Good Friday Vigil between 12 noon and 3.00pm. This a time for quiet prayer and reflection in the Church, with a reading, meditation and prayer given on the hour and half-hour. You are welcome to come and stay as long as you wish during the above times.

On Sunday 5th April we celebrate Easter Day at morning worship in the Parish Church at 10.15am and in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch at 11.45am. Note that the J Team are now on holiday until 26th April, although the Sunday School at Balloch are still meeting as usual.
