The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told. (Luke 2:20)
This Christmas Morning, in our all-age Christmas Celebration, we will be praising and glorifying God for all we see and hear about the birth of Jesus.
You would be very welcome to join us at our 10am Christmas Morning celebration (followed by Holy Communion) in St Andrew, Cuffley. The service will be taking place simultaneously online and in-person at St Andrew. Streaming for the 10:30am service will start at 9:55am, and can be accessed directly via Facebook or YouTube, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.

2022 Bible Reading
The start of the new year can be a time when we look at how we might read some or all of the Bible through the year. This year, why not try the Five Day Bible Reading Plan? Instead of reading each day of the week, it’s a commitment to reading for five days. The 2022 plan will be available for download on 26th December.
Thank you all so much for the card and very kind gift you gave me last week. I really appreciate it, and I enjoy running the livestreaming, visuals and audio.
Chris will be on leave from Sunday 26th December to Monday 3rd January.
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.
