There will be overnight roadworks (starting at 7pm) from May 20 to May 31 on Wycombe Road. There will be access to the church, even though there will be 'Road Closed' signs, if you ask nicely!

Work outside the church itself will be at the start of the cycle, the 15th and 16th. After that, depending on where they are working, you will be best off approaching the church from either the North (Prestwood side) or South (Kingshill side). This is a guide (though subject to change...)

15-18  - Lodge Lane to Peterley Lane (around the church)

19-22 - Approach from North

23-24 - Approach from South

On Sunday 27th May at 11am we will be celebrating the Patronal Festival of Holy Trinity Prestwood. Our preacher will be the Reverend Eric Muhl, Rector of the Swedish Church in London. This will be a combined benefice service, followed by some celebratory drinks and some nibbles. It will be the only service taking place on this day in the benefice and we hope as many of you as possible will join in the celebrations!

Many of you will remember Michael and Michele Foot, who moved away last year, with fondness. Michael has published his first novel, Moving On. It is a fast-paced novel exploring the theme of old age, and how it might be treated by a manipulative politician. It was this year's Lent Book . Michael has agreed to give a book talk in the church on Thursday 24th May at 7.30pm – 9.00pm where Michael will talk briefly about his book and the main issues it raises about the treatment of the elderly, so we can explore these themes together. The evening is free to people who have already purchased the book and will be £4 for people who don’t yet have a copy. Please pay on the night and you will get a copy of the book given to you. Michael has agreed that all funds raised will go to the church.

Thank you to all who attended the church's APCM on Sunday, April 22. We thanked many people, including Gill Hart and Doreen Clarke who step down as Church Wardens. We welcomed Dick Rivett as a new churchwarden and Nigel Bicknell as a new PCC member. We still have a vacancy for a second Church Warden. Please think, talk and pray about this roile and who could fill it.

Unbelievably (to me, at least) my training period is coming to an end and I am due to be ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Oxford at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford on Saturday 30 June.  The Cathedral service is at 10.00am (doors open at 9.00am) and I would love to see anyone from Prestwood and Great Hampden who is able to join me there (see separate notice).  Whether or not you can come to the Cathedral, you are all warmly invited to join me for a celebratory buffet in Holy Trinity Church from 2pm onwards.  If the weather is fine (we can always hope!), you might like to bring a folding chair to sit outside.  More details will follow nearer the time, but book the date now. May I take this opportunity to thank you all for the love, support and encouragement that both Irene & I have received during my training.   Nigel Spoor. 

It is hard to believe that Nigel and Irene have been with us for two years and that his ordination is fast approaching.  This most important occasion in Nigel's Christian journey is to take place in Oxford Cathedral, presided over by the Bishop on June 30th 2018 at 10.00. As Oxford is not the most convenient place to go to and to park, we are going to organise a coach for those from Holy Trinity Prestwood and St Mary Magdalene who wish to attend and support Nigel.    In order to arrive by 09.30, the coach will leave Holy Trinity at around 08.00. The service will be around 1.5 to 2 hrs and we will be back at HTP in good time to celebrate with Nigel.   Costs (ball-park) will be around £10-£15 per head depending on numbers of course. If you wish to join this trip, please contact Peter Baker,HTP PCC secretary, either by email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.
