‘I am the Alpha and the Omega,’ says the Lord God, ‘who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.’ (Revelation 1:8)
The book of Revelation is a letter from John to seven churches in modern day Turkey. They are facing hardship and persecution, and John writes to encourage the churches and to point them to the future. He starts by giving them Jesus’ words. The crucified and resurrected Lord Jesus tells them that he is. He is with them, and us, now and always. No matter what we face, what difficulties lie ahead of us, Jesus is with us, and he is the Almighty.
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 look together at Jesus Christ, the one who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.
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.
Cases of COVID-19 are increasing in our area. While there are no formal restrictions in place, please do maintain caution. Can I encourage you to consider wearing face coverings as you move around the buildings and when singing.
You would be very welcome to join us for a short service of Morning Prayer in St Andrew at 10:00am on Wednesday morning.
Christmas Coffee Mornings
This Wednesday, and on the 1st of December, we’ll be holding a Christmas Coffee Morning. The format will be the same as a usual coffee morning, but in addition we will be selling home made produce and various Christmas gifts and goodies. As with all our coffee mornings, these are open to everyone.
St Andrew’s Day
On Tuesday 30th November, at 5.00pm, there will be a service to mark St Andrew’s day. This will be followed by fish and chip supper. Please sign up using the list at the back of St Andrew’s, or see Kathy Shingles.
Christmas Nativity Trail
We’d love to have our church family add some Nativity cheer all around Northaw and Cuffley by decorating their windows with the story of the first Christmas. We’d then invite local families to see how many they could spot as they walked around the two villages, and use it as a way of connecting with our community. If you’d be interested in doing this, or to find out more, please get in touch with Anna (email@example.com).
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
