Our Deacon, Valerie Cuthbertson DCS, will be on annual leave from 2nd - 22nd May inclusive. During this period any member of the congregation in need of pastoral support should contact their Elder for help and advice. Should anyone require further information or contact details please speak to the Session Clerk.
Christian Aid Week 2022
Christian Aid Week 2022 runs from Sunday 15th until Saturday 21st May.
Cumbernauld Old has a fantastic record supporting the vital work of Christian Aid over many years. If you’re able to support them again this year, you can donate online using our 'e-envelope'. As always, thank you for your generous support.
Love lies at the heart of the Christian gospel and Christian Aid have produced a video about how love gives people like Janet the courage to stand strong against drought and hunger.
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church is delighted to be hosting a charity concert in aid of Doctors Without Borders (Médecins Sans Frontières) on Tuesday 17th May at 7.30pm.
The Sounds of Spring concert has been organised by local pianist David Swan and a quartet of young up-and-coming musicians who will play a mix of their own compositions and a variety of classical, folk and jazz music inspired by and in celebration of spring. Expect the sounds of birdsong and April showers, stories of new life, and vivid rushes of spring colour, heard through the sounds of brass, harps, keyboards and guitars.
We are delighted to host David and his fellow musicians for such a worthy cause and anyone who wishes to come along on Tuesday 17th would be most welcome.
Entry is by donation. Teas and coffees will be available for donation to church funds.
The fundraising team would like to thank everyone who helped us to raise a grand total of £868.60 for Church funds from sales of Easter cards and crafts.
Thank-you, too, to everyone who brought along their collected small change to worship on Sunday 8th May - our 'coffee jars' collection raised a magnificent £337.27 for the DEC Ukraine Appeal. In addition, our wee table with crafts and pennants for Ukraine has so far raised another £117 and more items have recently become available. Thanks to all the knitters in the congregation and the Craft Group for their beautiful work.
Your generosity really is inspiring!
Fairtrade Shopping List
We have updated our Fairtrade Shopping List and this is available both in the vestibule of the church and also on our website. If you want to order Fairtrade goods, please download and complete the form and return it by hand or email to Caroline Edwardson by the 3rd Sunday of each month (e.g. Sunday 15th May). Your Fairtrade goods will then be available for uplift and payment in Church the following Sunday. Many thanks for your continued support for fairer trade
Calling Online Shoppers!
Cumbernauld Old Parish Church has signed up to the fund-raising website called "Give As You Live". There are two ways you can help us through this scheme: one is when you do your shopping online, and the other is through online donations. Both are explained on our dedicated web page.
If you shop on Amazon, there is a different scheme called Amazon Smile that works in much the same way. For each purchase you make this way on Amazon, a percentage is donated by them to our church. Here’s how it works:
Rather than logging on directly to Amazon as before, instead log into smile.amazon.co.uk, (this link, and the banner below, will take you to our page) and if you are happy to choose Cumbernauld Old Parish Church as your chosen charity, then you are all set up to start shopping. It’s still the same Amazon, but by using Amazon Smile your shopping can make a difference to Cumbernauld Old. Thank you for making a difference!
