Burns' Supper
The church Men's Group hold their annual Burns' Supper in Cumbernauld Bowling Club on Wednesday 24th January at 7.00pm for 7.30pm. Tickets priced £8 are available from any member of the Men's Group or at the church.

Rainbow Tree
Rainbow Tree 2017
Our annual Rainbow Service was held on Sunday 17th December in the Parish Church.

During the service we created our 'Rainbow Tree' (pictured) from ribbons placed there by people who have been bereaved and wanted a time and place to reflect and remember.

The tree and the ribbons will remain in church until Easter 2018 (there will be another tree at the Forge when we worship there) and people who visit the church are welcome to tie other ribbons in memory of their loved ones. We also invite you to take and keep another ribbon for your own private memories.

World Mission Stamp Appeal
Once more we are asking members to collect and donate their used postage stamps over the Christmas period. They will go to the Church of Scotland's 2017 Stamp Appeal which, this year, will provide students with the training needed for ministry with the Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCOSS).
Please cut the stamps from your envelopes, leaving a margin of paper on each side, and pop them in the collection box in the church vestibule or the back of the hall at Balloch. We'll run this project until mid-January.

'Coffee Jar' collections
Thanks to everyone who has been collecting their small change in coffee jars during the past few months. These will be collected at our morning worship services on Sunday 21st January. Proceeds from this collection will go to Mary's Meals, a registered charity who provide nutritious meals for children in some of the world's poorest communities.

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.
