Holy Trinity Church provides dedicated teams to aid in the physical and spiritual well-being of the Parish community. Newcomers are welcomed to the various groups, to participate in outreach, prayer for others, or just reflective meditation.
Pastoral Care Group
A team of pastoral care visitors calls on those who are sick, either in their homes or in hospital, and may also make follow-up visits after bereavement. This team is available to anyone in our community, not just church members, as a way to serve all of our parish. For more information or to get involved please contact the Rector.
Transportation for the Elderly
We provide a rota of drivers on Sundays to bring elderly parishioners to any church service. If you would like to volunteer to be a driver or you want to arrange a lift to church please contact us.
There is a group of people who hold before God those who have asked for our prayers. To do this we ask you to either contact one of the clergy or fill in a prayer card on the Prayer Tree in the church. On the first Monday of the month at 11.45 am we meet for a short act of worship and time to hold those requests before God.
If you know of someone for whom you would like us to pray, then please phone or email the Rector of if you prefer, use the Prayer Tree in the church to make any requests known to us. You can also light a candle in church as you pray at the Candle Tree. Jesus is the light of the world, and lighting a candle reminds us that his light shines in all the dark places of the world.
If you would like to join us you would be made most welcome.
There are a number of online resources to help you pray. Take a look at Just Pray, or use the Church of England's daily prayer feed.
Remember, an important part of our church life together is in making appeals to God for those in need of help – and all our prayers are heard. Please hold our church and community in your prayers.
The Quiet Garden
The Quiet Garden movement www.quietgarden.org was established 20 years ago by Rev. Philip Roderick who used as his inspiration the text from Mark 6: 31 "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest" There are now branches of the Quiet Garden movement throughout the world, including one here at Holy Trinity, Prestwood.
The aim is to provide space for those who feel the need to step aside from the daily problems of life, to engage in quiet contemplation and prayer in the company of like minded people. We welcome those of any faith or none, to share in reflection in the quiet or the church, its grounds or the cottage, though we sometimes meet in other venues, especially during the winter months.
