Lighthouse goes online for a lockdown holiday club

Because of the Coronavirus, we’re not able to meet all together for church holiday clubs this summer – and one of those clubs is Lighthouse, a Christian holiday club that’s been running for ages!

But fear not – because whether you’re at home, in the garden or the car – Lighthouse is bringing the fun to you. Join in online with a new, free app.

Lighthouse began in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire and has grown to attract 5,000 children and 3,000 leaders each year. Lighthouse holiday clubs, in normal times, take place in 12 venues.

Here are the details of Lighthouse Live – the web-based lockdown version:

From Monday 27th to Friday 31st July 2020 the day will start at 10am with an hour-long show presented by Joanna (from CBeebies), Pete and Professor Max (he’s a dog but thinks he’s human) and packed with lots of fun, singing, dancing, Bible Stories, surprise guests, challenges and messy games.

Once the show has finished, there will be various activities. There will be a daily craft activity, prayer craft, awesome fun stuff to download, street dance, a sports challenge, a quiz that everyone in the family can do, some lovely stretching mindfulness time – and quite a few surprises.

At 4pm we will be back in the studio with more music, fun and games – and someone somewhere will be gunged. It could be you.

Want to join the fun? Sign up here. You will receive the link to access Lighthouse Live for the week and to download materials like colouring sheets and puzzles and the all-important list of what you’ll need for a week of Lighthouse Craft! Everyone is welcome, no matter what age.

Do you love to grown your own food? Will you shortly have more courgettes and cucumbers than you know what to do with? Look no further than 'Harvest Share'.

Restore Hope, Latimer have set up a new scheme called FoodLife and are providing fresh food boxes for families in need in the local area, including HP16. They would love your surplus home grown produce for these boxes. If you have any to spare, please let Fran know (This email address is being protected from spambots.

The area in the churchyard where ashes are interred is getting full. But we believe it is an essential part of our duty of care to the community that we keep Prestwood’s churchyard open. We have launched an appeal to create a Memorial that is a beautiful, permanent and fitting place for the ashes of our loved ones to be interred now and into the future. We have commissioned Martin Cook to design a stone monument to record the names of those to be interred in the Ashes Garden.
You can find out all about the memorial at http://www.htprestwood.org.uk/ashesgarden or by picking up a leaflet in church. Of course we want our members to contribute to this important, beautiful and permanent memorial. But more importantly we need our church community to be ambassadors in the village, talking about and sharing our leaflets and encouraging the whole community to contribute. We want all the different village groups to be enthusiastic supporters of this project. This is a memorial for the village, not the church. Our hope is that the people of Prestwood will be able to rest in peace in their churchyard long into the future.

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.

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.

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!

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.
