Following the success of the last film screenings, Chiltern Village Cinema are returning to Holy Trinity Prestwood with another two films to come and enjoy on Saturday 16th September. They are
4.45pm ET – the Extra-Terrestrial (U)
7.30pm The Shawshank Redemption (15)
Tickets are available now at www.vintagecinema.co.uk/book-tickets and you can select whether you would like a bean bag chair or a bench seat.

We will be attending the Peterley Manor Christmas Market again this year for the two days. The preserves proved immensely popular last year and, as we enter the jam making season, I would like to put out a request to all jam, chutney, pickle, marmalade makers to put aside a few jars for the church to sell every time you make a batch for yourself.
Alternatively if you have spare produce that other people could use to turn into preserves please contact Jean Green on 865660 so it won’t go to waste.

We are putting some groups together for people who want explore Communion and/or Confirmation in the Autumn. There will be groups for young people and adults. They will be relaxed and friendly, and if this is something you'd like to think about please speak to the Rector or Teresia.

Bookings are now being taken for visits to "Prestwood on Sea" the holiday club for older people in our community until the 1st August. The dates are 10, 17 and 24 August from 11am to 3.15pm in the Methodist Church and Hall in High Street, Prestwood, where guests can enjoy activities, entertainment and good food, as well as a lot of chat. Book your place now with Mary Wiles (866783). Guests can come for 1, 2 or all 3 days. Transport can be arranged if necessary.
PRESTWOOD ON SEA RAFFLE Guests and helpers at Prestwood on Sea Holiday Club all receive a free raffle ticket each week. The organisers are looking for some small items to use as prizes e.g. sweets, biscuits, toiletries, little notebooks etc. Please give any such items to Mary Wiles in Church any Sunday, or telephone 866783 and she will pick them up. Also wanted, a few “glossy magazines” e.g. Hello, Good Housekeeping, for guests to look through if they are bored! Thank you.

Our now-traditional Harvest Smorgasbord will take place after our Harvest Festival at the farm. It's a lovely brunch and great way to end the service. You must book your tickets before the day. Tickets are £8.00, with donations for children, and are available from Doreen Clarke (863397).

Our Harvest Festival will take place on Sunday 17th September. By kind permission of the Davis family our Harvest Festival will again take place at Wren Davis, Collings Hanger Farm, Wycombe Road, Prestwood, HP16 0HP. The farm is just 150 yards north of the church on Wycombe Road. If the weather's dry we will have the service in the farmyard. If it's wet we will gather in the cow barn. There is plenty of parking at the farm, and comfortable seating too. Please bring your Harvest Gifts of donations for AVS Mama Bags (see additional notice for list of possible items to donate) or fresh produce to this service. After the service there will be the Harvest Smorgasbord.

At our Harvest Festival this year we will be continuing our involvement with African Village Support (AVS).
This year as usual please bring fresh produce but, instead of tinned and packaged goods, also bring donations of the following items for inclusion in a church collection for Mama Bags:

• baby clothes (0-6 months).
• booties
• hats and mittens
• blankets
• towels
• cotton wool
• underwear for mothers
• rubber gloves

Mama Bag provides basic items to help with hygiene during the birth and after care for new-borns and their mothers.
The proceeds of the auction of fresh produce will be given to AVS to help with transport costs of the Mama Bags.

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, Karen Lamb. The hall is booked on a first-come, first-served basis. There are no automatic bookings, so everybody has to go through Karen. 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.
