Upcoming Social Events
There will be a Coffee Morning with Garden Goods and Plant Sale on Saturday 8th October from 10.30am to 12.30pm in the Manse grounds. (The coffees will be served inside the manse!) As well as selling plant cuttings (so all you gardeners out there, please bring cuttings from your garden over the summer months for the event) we are also looking for donations of planters, baskets and any other containers which we can sell on the day.
We will also be holding a Christmas Crafts Fair on Saturday 5th November from 10.00am to 1.00pm in the Village Hall in The Wynd, so please mark that date in your diaries
The Big Manse Clean
A lot of work and redecoration has been carried out over the past few months to keep the manse up to a suitable, liveable standard. It now needs a 'spring clean' (yes, we know it's autumn!) A work party will undertake a freshen-up on Friday 7th October at 11.00am. If you can spare an hour or two that morning your help will be much appreciated. Please bring your own rubber gloves, cleaning cloths and materials though. Thanks in advance for your help.
'On the Road' with the Church of Scotland
Representatives from the Church of Scotland are going ‘on the road’ this autumn to 15 venues spread across the length and breadth of Scotland (and also to London) to hear the views of local people on the future of the church.
The event in Falkirk Presbytery will be at St Andrew's Church, Bo'ness on Wednesday 30th November from 6.30pm to 9,00pm. Find out more about these roadshows from the Church of Scotland website.
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.
