We are very grateful to the people who told us how much our Holy Week and Easter services meant to them--both those who were able to join us in person and those who participated online. Thank you all so much for your kind words. An awful lot of effort from an awful lot of people went into our services and activities. Our musicians, the organisers and helpers for the Easter Trail, our un-furloughed acolytes, and everyone who helped prepare for the outdoor Easter service played a part. Thanks to all!

We will be holding our annual parish meeting on Sunday 25th April 2021 at10.30. As we are still restricted in meeting face to face due to Covid the meeting will be held on Zoom to ensure as many people as possible can attend.

The annual report booklet is available on the website, this includes the agenda for the meeting, and it will be posted to those people who do not have internet access. The accounts are also available on the website.
The Zoom meeting details will be published nearer the time but please put the date in your diary.

As we are starting to run outdoor Sunday services we need help in the setting up and clearing away. We would like to set up a rota of two helpers for each service until the summer. If you think could help please contact Dick Rivett on 07871 040217.

From April 12 there will be a new pattern of Online Morning and Evening Prayer. Morning Prayer will still be at 8.00am, but the format will change slightly as we begin to follow a psalm and reading set for each day. Weekday Compline at 8.00pm will be retired and replaced by Evening Prayer at 5.30pm. But we will retain Compline at 8.00pm on Sundays. Due to the special Holy Week Services and the break for the week after Easter the last Compline service falls on Thursday March 25.

“Come and see” is the invitation Philip gives to Nathaniel in John 1:46, to ‘come and see’ Jesus.  Throughout Lent, we’ll be exploring deeper questions of faith together, through a series of weekly videos from Bishop Steven (Bishop of Oxford) and group discussions on Wednesday afternoons.  Full details, including links to the videos, are to be found on our website at www.htprestwood.org.uk/come-and-see

The remaining discussion groups will start at 2:00pm on Zoom, on Wednesday 10th March, 17th March and 24th March.  All welcome, we will use the same meeting ID and password as for Zoom Coffee on Sunday mornings (for these details, see our weekly email, or contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

Do you have some free time and a ball of wool? We need you! A member of our congregation, Colette McGilchrist, is a midwife at Wexham Park hospital. The labour ward are in need of knitted hats for their newborn babies.  Over 400 babies are delivered each month; that's a lot of hats needed to keep new heads cosy this winter! The hats are really important to keep babies warm in their first 24 hours and to stabilise their blood sugars after birth. The knitted hats can be any colour, and need to be between 33cm-37cm in circumference. Each baby is able to take home their first hat and so it also becomes a wonderful keepsake. If you can spare the time to get knitting, it would be greatly appreciated by Colette and the rest of the team. Please contact Fran (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) when you have some little hats ready for their new home. Thank you.

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.

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.
