Jesus answered them, ‘It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but those who are ill. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.’ (Luke 5:31-32, NIV)
This is great news from Jesus. If Jesus only came to call the righteous, we would have no hope. Instead, Jesus says that he came for those people who get things wrong. In other words, he came for people like us.
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 see the great news that Jesus came for us.
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.
If you want to catch up with last week’s sermon, it’s available to listen to via SoundCloud.
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.
You would be very welcome to join us for a short service of Morning Prayer in St Andrew at 10:00am on Wednesday morning.
8:30 services at St Thomas
Because of the vicar’s leave, and the difficulty of finding cover, there will not be an 8:30am service on 31st July, 7th August, and 14th August.
31st July: Songs of Praise
At the 10:30am service on 31st July, we’re going to have a ‘Songs of Praise’ service. If you’d like to pick a song or hymn to sing, please let me know by Sunday 24th July (firstname.lastname@example.org, 07446 516945) - if you’d be willing to say a few words about why you’ve chosen, that would be very welcome.
We’re very blessed to have an organist playing with us most Sundays at 10:30. It would be great if we were able to expand that further. If you might interested in being part of some form of choir or play an instrument please be in touch with Chris, the vicar (email@example.com, 07446 516945 / 01707 699030).
This is advance notice that Chris is on leave from 29th July to 15th August.

Praying during the week
We try to send out an email each week with suggestions for your prayers. If you would like to make any suggestions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
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].
