Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! (Romans 7:24-25)
We’ve spent a lot of time over the last few Sundays seeing how serious sin is - leading to death - and how amazing God’s grace is to us - leading to life. These last couple of verses are a turning point in this part of Paul’s letter to the Romans; in chapter 8, we start to see some of the freedom that comes from knowing God. At this point, however, Paul expresses his desire to so what is right, but wrestles with knowing that he still does wrong. How can he be rescued from this? Who will deliver him from death? Only God can, and only God does, through Jesus Christ.
You would be very welcome at our 10:30am service in St Andrew, Cuffley or at 8:30am for a service of Holy Communion in St Thomas, Northaw, this Sunday, as we see more of God’s amazing provision of life for us.
The 10:30am Sunday morning service will also be streamed. This will start at 10:25am, and can be accessed directly via YouTube or Facebook, found on our website, and is advertised on our Facebook page and YouTube channel.
Previous sermons on Romans are available via our SoundCloud.
Our children’s church meets this Sunday morning in the Undercroft (underneath the main building). Children are welcome from 10:20, and will join us in the main part of the building at the end of the service.
July and August Rotas
Anne isn’t able to organise the rotas for July and August, so there are blank rotas at the back of St Andrew. Thank you to all those who have already signed up; there are still a couple of empty slots, if you would like to help.

There have been a couple of cases of emails pretending to come from me, asking for your help. Please do not reply to them, but delete them and/or mark them as spam.
How can you tell that an email is this kind of scam:
- The email address isn’t one I use - I only use email addresses that end '@norcuff.com’;
- It won’t have my usual ‘footer’ at the bottom of the email, where I give my contact details, etc.
- They will say that I am in a meeting, and can only be contacted by email;
- Should you reply, you will be asked to purchase a large amount of vouchers or online credit for me - I would never do that.
If you are at all unsure, please don’t do anything until you have spoken to me, either in person or on the phone.
