The Forge Community Centre
While the Kirk Session pursues all options to reinstate Sunday morning worship in Balloch, the interim arrangement is to hold a joint service of worship at 11.00am in the Parish Church until further notice. This replaces our previous two worship services at 10.15am in the Village and 11.45am at the Forge.

Transport will be arranged for those who need to get from Balloch to the Village. If you require transport please let us know as soon as possible.

The Ladies’ Circle and Boys’ Brigade company who meet at the Forge during the week are unaffected by this change, which affects only weekend lets.

Harvest Thanksgiving
A very big ‘thank-you’ to everyone who contributed gifts for the Harvest table at Cumbernauld Old this morning. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. During the week, all our donations will be bagged and boxed and taken to the local food bank, where they will be shared with those who are in need.

Armistice Remembrance - latest update
Poppies being sewn onto banner The fixing of the poppies to create the Remembrance ‘waterfall’ is going on at a fair pace and the panels are looking fantastic. We'd like to thank to all the ladies who came to the two sessions last week. The Session House was really buzzing with around 12 volunteers each day. There was a tremendous feeling of fellowship and a lot of laughter, not to mention the coffee and the biscuits!
There will be another three sessions next week and everyone is welcome to come along and add their contribution to the project. You don’t need to stay the full time, just pop in for as long or as short a time as you can manage. The times are:
  • Monday: 10am until 12 noon;
  • Tuesday: 1pm until 3pm;
  • Wednesday: 10am until 12 noon.

Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Baby Bank
Cumbernauld Old is happy to support new mothers through the Cumbernauld & Kilsyth Baby Bank.
We have placed boxes in the vestibule at the church for donations of clothing, etc for babies or children up to seven years of age. We have further details on our blog.

Cumbernauld Food Banks
The Food Bank in the Village is open each Friday from 11am - 12.30pm at the Parish Church. Donations of food, toiletries, money etc. are always welcome and greatly valued. We would, however, really appreciate more volunteers to join our rota. Please contact the church if you are interested. Thanks!
