This Christmas, could you help to pray for every house in Prestwood and Great Kingshill?  We have hundreds of Christmas postcards ready to distribute through as many letterboxes as possible.  The aim is to pray for each household as we deliver the cards.  Postcards are at the back of church, along with a list of roads and some very brief guidelines.

  • Write down on the list which street/s you're going to deliver to
  • take the cards
  • get walking, delivering and praying

... and wish the whole parish a Merry Christmas from Holy Trinity!

Our Christmas 2021 programme is available online. You can find out all about it, book tickets for the Christmas Eve Christingle services, and keep up to date with our COVID guidance at www.htprestwood.org.uk/christmas.

Sunday Evening Compline has moved time to 6.00pm. Please join us at www.htprestwood.org.uk/online.

The annual Christmas Day lunch for people who will be on their own at Christmas will resume this year on 25th December from 12.30pm - 3.30pm and will take place at Great Missenden Baptist Church.

We have an excellent cook, but would be pleased to hear of anyone who may be able to help with the following:

Drivers to collect guests.

Drivers to deliver to those who are housebound.

Helpers on the day (food servers, front of house, cleaning up).

We also need additional helpers to assist on Christmas Eve between 2pm and 4pm to decorate the tables and help with food prep.

If you feel this is something that you can help with, please contact Mary Spooner on 01494 862431.  If you would like to come as a guest or know of anyone who may be on their own this Christmas please book a place at the lunch on the same number.

 

We're excited to announce that we will be running a stall at Missenden Abbey Festive Illuminations on the evening of Sunday 12th December.
The stall will sell preserves, cakes and craft items and we would really appreciate help with setting up, dismantling the stall and selling on both evenings.
The event is open to the public from 4pm to 8pm.
If you are able to help on the evenings or bake cakes, have preserves or craft items, please speak to Jean or Doreen.

Did you know you can light a candle and make a prayer request in Holy Trinity, Prestwood? The church is open all day for everyone. You are invited to walk in and up to the altar area, light your candle and write your prayer--or just sit and spend time with God.

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 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.

This is a regular weekly event, open to all, where we can step back from normal life and take stock for an hour.  We hope you will find it a safe place to come and explore questions of life and faith, to share experiences and ideas, take time to reflect and to notice God more in our lives. 

Open to all, Time Out will run throughout the autumn: just drop in, each week is standalone. The format will be more 'drop-in' than 'course'.  So while we expect a similar shape to each session, there's a level of informality for the conversation to be shaped by those present and what's on our minds that day (just in case, leaders will always come with a conversation starter).  The 'drop-in' nature also means we don't expect everyone to come every week (though you will always be very welcome of course!)

To make this as accessible as possible, we'll be offering Time Out at two different times each week:

  • Mondays at 8:00pm (mostly with Fran)
  • Tuesdays at 2:00pm (mostly with Kevin)

Always in the Annexe (behind the church hall), every week (with breaks for half term and school holidays).

We do hope you'll come along - feel free to bring a friend. 

For more information, talk to Fran or Kevin.

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.

Our work continues, but our income is now significantly reduced. Please support us by donating securely online and help fund the work of Holy Trinity, Prestwood.
