Nativity Play and Gift Service
This coming Sunday 20th December, morning worship at Cumbernauld Old will be our annual Gift Service and we invite those attending to bring a Christmas gift (preferably unwrapped) for a child or an adult. These will be distributed through our local food bank to those in need  Thank-you.

Also at this morning's service, the young people in our J Team will be presenting their take on the Nativity Story. This is always a highlight of our Advent Season and we look forward to hearing the familiar story presented in an unfamiliar way.

Rainbow Service
Our annual service of remembrance and memorial for those who have been bereaved - the Rainbow Service - takes place in the Parish Church on Sunday 20th December at 3.00pm. A warm welcome is extended to all who would like to take some 'time out' this Christmas to remember a loved one who is longer with us.

Details of all our Advent and Christmas events are listed on a dedicated web page.

Advent Reflections
Cumbernauld Churches Together warmly invite everyone to their Advent Reflection Services on Wednesdays 12th and 19th December at 7.00pm in the Church of the Holy Name.

On Thursday 13th December at 6.30pm, Elspeth will be leading a carol service at the Village Care Home to which all, not just residents, are invited. Come along and add your voices to theirs!

On Saturday 15th December, Cumbernauld Churches Together will be singing carols in Phase 2 of Cumbernauld Town Centre (near the Argos store) from 1pm then later in the Antonine Centre (near the former Dunnes store) from around 2pm. We hope you will join us!

Tickets are now available for the Boys' Brigade Carol Concert on Thursday 20th December at 7.00pm in the Forge Community Centre, Balloch. The suggested donation is £3 per ticket.

Church Magazine
Our quarterly church magazine has just been published and will be hand-delivered to our members. The main articles from the latest edition are now also available online. We have also just received the latest Partner Letter from Graham & Sandra Duncan, our World Mission Partners in South Africa. That can be downloaded here.

Cumbernauld Food Banks
We are grateful for all the regular donations which allow us to help other people every week of the year. The Village Food Bank, which is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church, has been helping an increasing number of households in need, so every single donation is very much appreciated.
We have recently been advised that the Trussell Trust, who support the Freedom City Food Bank, are now the sole beneficiaries of all donations from Tesco at Craigmarloch and the Town Centre. Anyone, therefore, wishing to support our own Food Bank is invited to donate at the Parish Church. Heartfelt thanks from all at the Village Food Bank.
