We always thank God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, when we pray for you, because we have heard of your faith in Christ Jesus and of the love you have for all God’s people (Colossians 1:3-4, NIV)
We’re starting a new series this Sunday, working our way through St Paul’s letter to the Colossians. It’s a letter that begins with thankfulness for the Colossian Christians, and prayer that they would continue to live in Christ. It’s also a letter to us, that we would continue to live in Christ and give thanks to God.
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 start to look together at Paul’s letter to the Colossians.
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 Vision Sunday 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.
Last Sunday was our Vision Sunday. You can catch up with the service online via YouTube, you can listen to the sermon and some future plans via SoundCloud.
If you are on our contact database, there is a vision pack with your name on it available at the back of St Andrew. If not, there are some unnamed ones that you would be very welcome to take.
After the morning service on the 2nd October, there will be a harvest lunch in St Andrew. Tickets are £10 per head; the sign-up sheet is at the back of St Andrew.
Do you, or anyone you know, have questions about Christianity, but have never quite got around to asking? You’re always welcome to speak to Chris, the vicar, but you may prefer to meet with a group of others. Our friends at King Charles the Martyr are running the Start Course on seven Wednesday evenings in October and November, where you can find out more about the Christian Faith, and ask all the questions you would like. More details are available on their website. There are also some cards available at the back of both church buildings.
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, you are very welcome to join us.
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.
The parish is applying for a faculty to install cavity wall insulation in St Andrew. This is part of making the main body of the church more useable, and helping to reduce the heating costs. There will be no change to either the exterior or interior of the building. The public notice is available on the website.
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].
