Collection for Christian Aid this year will centre mainly on several different events organised by the local churches. These events ‘kicked off’ Monday 18th March with a screening of the excellent film Hidden Figures at Great Missenden Baptist Church and more events are planned for late April and May. Further details will be available nearer the time.

In the meantime Maggie Page is seeking a few volunteers to stand and rattle (not literally as we are not allowed to) a tin outside the Co op and Post Office on Saturday 11th May.

This year we have a second thought-provoking novel by Michael Foot -- Angel Manifesto. A new political party - the Angels - appears in British politics. Part cult, part charity, the Angels are well funded, well-led by Michael (named after the Archangel). Their policies are designed to appeal across the UK electorate. They are linked with a Muslim group, the two drawn together by the fact that the Qur'an was dictated by the Angel Gabriel. Please take a book from the back of the church and make a £5 donation via the wall safe.

This is the third year that we are supporting African Village Support (AVS), a well-known locally run charity whose aim is to help the local people in a rural villages in eastern Uganda to improve the quality of their lives. This year we are supporting an irrigation project focussing on irrigation and agriculture. The overall objective is to support AVS’ women’s and community groups to enhance their livelihoods and enable self-sustainability of food supply—this is despite variations in climate throughout the year. 

Our Goals:

Provision of six additional foot pumps £1,200.
Starter pack of seeds, fertiliser and various gardening tools £190.
Training and monitoring for up to an initial 3 months £1,400.
Total project funding: £2,790.

Please support our Lent Appeal by using an AVS Gift Aid envelope from the back of the church, or making an electronic donation do Holy Trinity clearly referenced AVS.

Would you like to be baptised, confirmed or start taking communion? Lent has always been a time when people think about getting baptised or confirmed or starting to take communion, if that's something they haven't done before. If you would like to think about any of those things then please seek out the Rector or Nigel. You can catch us after a service, drop us an email, or give us a phone call. We'd be really delighted to speak to you.

Do you feel that God is at work in Holy Trinity? Where can you see the Spirit moving? What is your prayer for our church and what is God saying to you about how we grow and thrive as his church in this place? The Church AGM is after the service on April 7, and it is our chance to ask these questions. We are looking for new PCC members as well. Is this a role you could see yourself in? It's your chance to have a say in the direction of your church, as we seek to grow, develop and join in with what God is doing in Prestwood. Please come along to the AGM, and please speak to the Rector, Nigel, or any serving PCC memberabout joining the PCC.

We’re delighted to announce that this summer we will be welcoming a new curate to the benefice. Kevin Lovell, who is being ordained on June 29, will serve as a full-time, stipendiary curate in Prestwood and Great Hampden. He is married to Gill, and they will be moving in to the Curate’s House in Prestwood in the Spring. This is really good news for both churches, and we look forward to getting to know Kevin and Gill, and sharing with them what God is doing in our communities. There’s more information in the Monthly Herald in Prestwood and the flyers in St Mary Magdalene’s.       . Please hold Kevin and Gilll in your prayers as they prepare for their move.

This five week Lent course, Follow Me On Monday, is aimed to encourage us in our Christian discipleship in daily life and work. Our life in Christ has a rhythm of going out from and returning to the praise and sacramental worship of Sunday, expressing and exploring this within, and gathering it from, our life in the world. Our Christian calling is, quite simply and profoundly, to follow Jesus. He goes before us into our world and there we shall find him, as he promised. To this discipleship we bring the whole of us, all our faculties, all our senses in our thinking, our acting and our experiencing. The five elements of the course are entitled: “Faithful Following”, “Wholly Living, “Called to Partnership”, “Raising our Eyes” and “Go in Peace”.

We meet in church and there will be refreshments served. All are welcome!

Great Missenden church is running a series of Lent talks on Mental Health and Human Flourishing. Lent gives us an opportunity to reflect, to consider different perspectives and to discover new aspects of faith in God.
This series of talks on Sunday afternoons will look at our faith in relation to mental health and human flourishing - looking at how mental health can affect people of all different ages from children at school to adults with dementia and how we with God can provide a supportive network of love and care.
Each talk begins at 4pm in St Peter & St Paul's Church, Church Lane, Great Missenden HP16 0BA. Everyone is welcome to attend. Following the talk, there will be an opportunity for questions. A short and simple service of Compline will follow at 5pm for those who wish. On 24th March, instead of Compline, coffee and cake will be served before an ecumenical Taize service at 6pm.
Parking is available outside church, and we have good access, including an accessible toilet.
For more information, please visit our website: missendenchurch.org.uk
