Every year in December Cumbernauld Old Parish Church holds a Rainbow Service and this year’s service was scheduled to be on 13th December. The Rainbow Service is particularly for those who have been bereaved, but can be for anyone who finds Christmas particularly difficult.
Usually we invite those at the service to tie ribbons around a tree in the Church to remember their loved ones. This year because of the restrictions we cannot have the service in the Church. However, you are invited to watch the recorded service from this link or from below.
If you would like to, please have a Christmas decoration or your own ribbon and some candles to hand for use during the Act of Remembrance.
May you know God’s enduring love and care this Christmas.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church invites one and all to our Advent and Christmas worship services over the next few weeks.
On Sunday 15th December at 11am we have our Nativity and Gift Service and invite those attending to bring a Christmas gift for distribution through our local food bank (more details here). Then at 3pm we hold our annual Rainbow Service for those who have been bereaved and wish to remember someone they have loved.
The annual service of remembrance and memorial for those who have been bereaved – the Rainbow Service – takes place in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 16th December at 3.00pm. A warm welcome is extended to all who would like to take some ‘time out’ this Christmas to remember a loved one who is longer with us.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will be holding our annual Rainbow Service on Sunday 17th December at 6.30pm in the Parish Church.
This is a service for people who have been bereaved and want a quiet time to reflect and remember. During this service we will create our ‘Rainbow Tree’ for 2017 when people will be invited to tie a coloured ribbon to the tree in memory of a loved one. The tree and the ribbons will remain in church until Easter 2018.
