Christian Aid Week 2017
The donations from this year's Christian Aid Week door-to-door collection in the Parish amounted to a fantastic £2595.01. In addition, donations at the Boys' Brigade Display raised another £300. We are also delighted to report that donations given under the Gift Aid scheme this year amounted to £1274, which will mean even more money for the work of Christian Aid. Just to put that £2895 in context, this is £700 more than was collected last year!

This is a fantastic result and thanks have to go to all the collectors, who have a difficult task at times dealing with some people who are not at all receptive to donating to Christian Aid. This year we gave Board and Session members five envelopes each and asked that they 'put them through the doors' of their closest neighbours. Thank you to everyone who did this - it may have made all the difference!  To all those who helped with counting the money - thank you too - and please, can we 'count' on you again next year!

Garden Party
A very big "thank-you" to everyone who supported our recent Garden Party. We are delighted to announce that an excellent total of £875 was raised for church funds. So again "well done" to all who organised and advertised, set up beforehand, donated, bought, served, cleared up afterwards or helped in any way.

Election of Minister
We are delighted to announce that the congregation has elected Rev Elspeth McKay as our new minister and more than 130 people have since signed the 'Call' to Elspeth too, so thanks for that.

Rev McKay's Induction as minister of Cumbernauld Old has been confirmed for Thursday 3rd August and we look forward to welcoming Elspeth and her family into the community. We'll post further information about her induction once that becomes known.

Meanwhile, the worship, witness and work of the church continues, and so we encourage everyone to continue to give their full support to the Interim Moderator, Locum and office-bearers.

Cumbernauld Food Banks
The Food Bank in the Village is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church.
We continue to look for donations, and especially 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. Now that we are open in the Session House each week we can also accept the donation of toiletries. There is a box for donations in the church vestibule and at worship in The Forge.
