Hannah said to Eli, ‘Pardon me, my lord. As surely as you live, I am the woman who stood here beside you praying to the Lord. I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the Lord. For his whole life he shall be given over to the Lord.’ (1 Samuel 1:26-28)
This Sunday, we welcome Archdeacon Janet to preach at both of our morning services.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look together at part of Hannah’s story.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will be taking place simultaneously online and in-person at St Andrew. Streaming for the 10:30am service will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.

As well as our prayers, there are various appeals raising funds to support those fleeing the conflict and those who cannot leave. Two that you might like to consider are:
The Diocese of St Albans also has some details on some ways we can help support Ukraine.
We are also able to support the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain via the Foodbank. More details of what they are collecting for and what they need are available on our [website][https://norcuff.com/ukraine].
As in previous years, we are holding a Maundy Thursday Supper with Holy Communion on Thursday 14th April at 6pm. The meal will be a selection of Meze (suitable for vegetarians) at £5 per person. There is a sign up sheet at the back of the church, and payment to be given to Doreen.
