The Church Office is open from 9-12 Monday to Thursday

Part of our mission here is to support the work of the wider church in all sorts of different ways. We are delighted that a priest in training, Steven Hilton, is going to be joining us on a Sunday placement during the coming year. Steve is resident at Cuddesdon theological college and just beginning his time there. We will meet him on October 15 when he worships with us for the first time. He is on a different pathway as an ordinand to Nigel. For those in residential training a Sunday placement is about watching and listening to the life of a parish church and worshipping alongside us in term-time, rather than the rugged, hands-on training that we are giving Nigel! Please help Steve and his partner Marco to feel welcome within our community.

Steve writes: I’m a first year ordinand at Ripon College Cuddesdon having just moved from South London (Diocese of Southwark) with my Civil Partner, Marco, and also our 18-month old pug, Nelson, and four rescued battery hens (who already give us ample eggs!). I’m also a magistrate in Westminster, a Freeman of the City of London and a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts. I am really delighted to be joining the worshipping community at Holy Trinity in Prestwood as I begin my first Sunday placement. It’s a great opportunity for me to be part of a different team and to experience other types of church as I worship alongside you. I graduated in theology/RS in 2001 and have spent over fifteen years working in public relations in central London including a spell at Lehman Brothers and the Royal Household. I’m also just embarking on the MTh at the University of Oxford during my formation and training at Cuddesdon.

If you have a church key, or would like to help keep the church open during the day and get a key, please go to www.htprestwood.org.uk/openchurch. Follow the simple instructions to sign up for specific occasions to lock or unlock the church. Please help us keep the church open on those days when we need some help!

Many people would like to sponsor the church flowers or music on a particular Sunday in memory of a loved one. If you would like to sponsor flowers or music then please speak to the Rector, a church warden or contact Liz in the office to make the arrangements. Suggested sponsorship is £30 for flowers or music for £50, but other donations are also welcome.

If you are arranging a church event that uses the Church Hall or Cottage please don't forget to book it! The only way to book the Church Hall or Cottage is to go through the Bookings Secretary. The hall is booked on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no automatic bookings, so everybody has to book. Don't forget!

The Parish Office is open from 9-12 am on Monday to Thursday for parish business. It is open from 9-12 am on Friday for Preschool business.

The church has lots of equipment—for cleaning, cooking and maintenance. Please make sure you know how to use equipment before you do. This may be as simple as familiarising yourself with the instructions, but with dangerous or complex equipment training is required. Scrub-bashing days are also training days for all the powered garden equipment.

Do visit the church website at www.htprestwood.org.uk. There's lots of information there, and if you create a login for yourself whenever you do log in you'll be taken straight to a page of useful links and rotas.

 

Praise God, our refurbishment is complete and we are open! First Sunday back, December 13 9.30am. Here are some photograps of the building.
