For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures. (1 Corinthians 15:3-4)
We’re spending a few weeks in Easter looking at the resurrection of Jesus. Is it true? Why does it matter? What does it mean for us today?
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 start to look together at the resurrection.
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.
If you encounter problems with viewing the service via Facebook (or YouTube) please follow the link for YouTube (or Facebook) instead.
We’ve had notice that there will be a road closure outside 13 Northaw Road East, from 23rd April to 24th April. Please bear this in mind as you consider your route to join us on Sunday.
On Good Friday, there was lots of fun learning about Easter at our Messy Church. You might notice two items that were created that morning: the table covering at St Andrews and an Easter Garden, outside the Undercroft kitchen window. Do go and look at them - the Easter Garden also has seeds, so will change over the coming weeks.
Monday Morning Service
On Monday mornings at 9am in St Thomas, during term time, we hold our Monday Morning Service. This is a service focussed on the whole school community, but is open to everyone. This service is a great way for the church family and school community can build relationships. We’d love you to join us on Monday mornings.
You would be very welcome to join us for a short service of Morning Prayer in St Andrew at 10:00am on Wednesday morning.
Our weekly in person Coffee Shop will be taking place this Wednesday from 10:30 to 12:30 in St Andrew, Cuffley, all are very welcome to join us.
Annual Meetings and Electoral Roll
Our Annual Meetings are scheduled for Wednesday 27th April at 7.00 p.m. for a 7.30 start. At the meetings, we will elect churchwardens and PCC members, as well as hear reports from the previous year.
As part of the preparations for the meetings, the Electoral Roll has been revised. A published list of those on the Electoral Roll is available at the back of both churches.
More details, including churchwarden and PCC nomination forms, are available on our website. This page will be kept up to date with all the information and forms needed.
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].
