At the end of our look at Paul’s letter to the Colossians, we were reminded that Christians are part of a bigger church family than just those we meet with each week.

You would be very welcome to join us at 10:30am in St Andrew, Cuffley, or at 8:30am in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we look at the worldwide family of God
