Lord, do not forsake me; do not be far from me, my God. Come quickly to help me, my Lord and my Saviour. (Psalm 38:21-22, NIV))
Where do we look when things go wrong? When school is horrid, work is hard, or life just seems unfair - where do we turn for help? What about when we are the ones who have messed up? Where to we go for help then? The answer from the psalm is to appeal to God for help.

There is no children’s church this Sunday, as we all meet together in the main body of the building.
Next Sunday (11th September), we will be looking at our church’s vision for the next few years. We’ll see what we have achieved so far, what still needs to be done, and some of our plans for the future. I hope you’ll be able to join us, as we celebrate God’s goodness to us, seek his wisdom and guidance for the future, and see how we can work together to glorify God, grow disciples and share the good news.
You would be very welcome to join us for a short service of Morning Prayer in St Andrew at 10:00am on Wednesday morning.

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.
