When Jesus saw their faith, he said, ‘Friend, your sins are forgiven.’ (Luke 5:20, NIV)
Jesus has been preaching and teaching in various towns and villages. He has healed the sick, and cast out demons. Here we see something new - Jesus forgives sins. Why is this so important, and why is it so amazing?
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service of Holy Communion in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we see how Jesus forgives sins.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service of 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.
Our children’s church meets this Sunday morning in the Undercroft (underneath the main building). Children are welcome from 10:20, and will join us in the main part of the building at the end of the service.
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.

The Diocese of St Albans also has some details on some ways we can help support Ukraine.
