Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’ (Matthew 28:19-20)
At Jesus’ ascension into heaven, the disciples are left with a command and a promise. The command was not just for them, but for all Christians. What does it mean to make disciples? How can Jesus always be with us, if he is in heaven?
I hope you can join us this Sunday as we look together at Jesus command to all his disciples, and the promise that makes it all possible.

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].
The parish is applying for a faculty to demolish and back-fill the old boiler house at St Thomas. The building is redundant, and water from the roof has caused considerable damage to the interior of the side chapel. The public notice and other documents are available on the website.
