“Go back and report to John what you have seen and heard: The blind receive sight, the lame walk, those who have leprosy are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, and the good news is proclaimed to the poor. Blessed is anyone who does not stumble on account of me.” (Luke 7:22-23)
What do we expect from Jesus? Does he do what we think he’s going to do? Does the Jesus we see in action - both in God’s Word and around us - make us question who he is? What Jesus does tells us what he is like, and what we should be like.
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 look together at what Jesus does, and how that tells us who he is.

Work in Northaw churchyard
You may have seen the notice on the cedar tree on the north side of the churchyard indicating its removal during October. The tree has unfortunately become rotten at the base and needs to be removed before it falls down.
We have a service of confirmation on Sunday 8th October at 10:30 in St Andrew. It would be great to have as many as possible to support our candidates as they declare their faith.
We’re currently using self-signup for the various rotas: blank rotas will be pinned up at the back of St Andrew. If you are one of our regular welcomers, readers, pray-ers, communion assistants, or refreshment helpers, please do sign up where you are able to.
If don’t already help, and this would be something you would like to do, please talk to Chris.
The parish is applying for a faculty to provide long-term, but temporary support to the West Window at St Thomas, Northaw. This will result in the installation of internal scaffolding, and the boarding over of the West Window. The public notice and full details are available on the website.
