Now there were some Greeks … They came to Philip, who was from Bethsaida in Galilee, with a request. ‘Sir,’ they said, ‘we would like to see Jesus.’ (John 12:20-21)

In John’s gospel, this meeting marks the start of Jesus heading to Jerusalem and his death. Why does Jesus need to do this? What will he achieve? What does it change for us?

You would be very welcome at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley or at 9am for a service of Holy Communion in St Andrew, Cuffley, this Sunday, as we see Jesus head to Jerusalem.

The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed.  This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via YouTube or Facebook, 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 continues 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.

Lent Course

Our Lent course (using The Bible Course) continues this week. We have two sessions that meet each week:

  • Monday Evening, 7:30pm at 17 Tolmers Avenue, Cuffley.

If you have one, please bring a Bible with you (physically or electronically). On Wednesday lunchtime, you would also be welcome to bring your lunch.

If this is something you would like to be part of, please be in touch with Chris - or just turn up.

Large Print Bibles

We’ve managed to get hold of some very large print Bibles. The text is larger than we use in the printed sheets. We plan to have some of them available for use in church, and some for sale. If these might be helpful for you, please do use them in the service, and do consider purchasing one.

Norman's funeral is on Tuesday 19th March at 10:45am, in St Thomas Oakwood (N14 4SN).
