Sunday 14th November is Remembrance Sunday. There will be an Act of Remembrance at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village at 10.45am followed by morning worship in the Parish Church at approximately 11.15am. Worship will be led by Rev Phyllis Wilson.
If you are joining us in person, there is no longer any need to book in advance, but we do ask that you try to maintain a safe distance between yourself / your family group and other worshippers while in the church sanctuary. You will still need to wear a face covering throughout the service, use the hand sanitiser provided on arrival and departure and leave your contact details for Test & Protect. Hymn-sheets will be provided but you are very welcome to bring your own copy of the CH4 hymn-book if you have one.
You are warmly invited to join us for worship on Sunday 8th November, Remembrance Sunday. Our prerecorded worship service, led by our minister Rev Elspeth McKay, is available here.
We appreciate that many will be disappointed that there will be no service at the War Memorial this year but, hopefully, you will understand the current circumstances and that this worship service will be a fitting alternative.
As with all our worship services this Sunday’s service is available to all, so please feel free to share with any family or friends. Please also check out our Facebook page for all the latest news from Cumbernauld Old.
Time for Reflection
We hope to have our next ‘Time for Reflection’ in Cumbernauld Old Parish Church on Sunday 15th November at 11am. The Time for Reflection will provide an opportunity for people to come and reflect and pray for half an hour in the church building. In order to ensure as safe an environment as possible, we need to limit the number of people who can attend and so we would invite those who wish to attend to let us know in advance. There will also be an online worship service, and we’ll post the details of that nearer the time.
The Annual Service of Remembrance, including the laying of wreaths and observing the national two minutes of silence, will take place at 10.45am this Sunday, 10th November, at the War Memorial in Cumbernauld Village. Morning worship at Cumbernauld Old Parish Church will follow at approximately 11.15am.
To commemorate the centenary of the end of the First World War this year, Cumbernauld Old Parish Church hopes to apply for Heritage Lottery Funding (or, indeed, grants from other sources) to host events in the autumn.
Our initial ideas include a community cinema, arts and crafts workshops and investigating the men from the Village who gave their lives in that conflict. This will culminate in a special display on Armistice Sunday, 11th November 2018.
We are looking for your thoughts and ideas and, better still, help!
If you want more details, or can offer help or suggestions, please leave us a note. Thanks.
