‘Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven – as her great love has shown. But whoever has been forgiven little loves little.’ (Luke 7:47 NIV)
This Sunday, we’re continuing our short series looking at Experiencing God. This week, we’re going to be considering how we experience love. As we read the encounter between Jesus and the sinful woman, we will see how God’s goodness to us should lead us to love God more, and to love one another more.
I hope you’ll be able to join us either in person, or online, as we look together as God’s graciousness to us, and how that helps us to love.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10:30am service this Sunday. We are now able to have social contact indoors under the rule of 6 (or two households) inside (and up to 30 outdoors).
There will be a service of Holy Communion at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service of Holy Communion 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.
Our Children’s Church is running this Sunday. All babies and children (and their grown-ups, if they are not old enough or comfortable enough to stay alone) are welcome to join us in the Undercroft any time after 10.20. Pre-registration is very helpful where possible, so that we can get details and explain the COVID requirements in advance; please contact Anna in order to do this (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The audio from the 10:30 service will be available (01707 927907) later in the afternoon, once it has been processed. As well as the ‘dial-in’ service, audio recordings of all services are also available through SoundCloud.

Wednesday Evening Bible Study
The Wednesday evening Bible Study continues this week. I’d love for you to join me, for no longer than 60 minutes, as we look at little bit more at God’s Word together. We’ll be working from a study book called Experiencing God, please let me know if you would like a copy. Join via Zoom: https://zoom.us/j/97466572556.
Praying during the week
Please can I encourage you, when possible, to stop at noon and spend a few minutes praying; we’ll email out possible areas for prayer each week. If you would like to make any suggestions, please email email@example.com.
The PCC appoint four of the governors for Northaw school, in addition to the vicar; there are currently two PCC vacancies. If you would be interested in serving both the church and school in this way, please contact the vicar (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Step 4 Delayed
You will have seen that the Prime Minister delayed the move to Step 4 by up to four weeks. This means that we will be in the Step 3 arrangements for a little while longer.
We are able to sit in groups of six (or two households if more) during services, if we want to. These groups need to be socially distant from each other, and there should be no mixing or mingling between groups.
If you would like to sit as part of a group, please do - if possible, please arrange this before finding a seat. Please also remember that there may well be those who do not want to sit as part of a larger group.
How to join us live
The website has the information on how to join our live services and virtual coffee. Do feel free to share the links to our services with friends and relatives; everyone is very welcome to join us, no matter where they are in the world.
