The PCC will conduct a full review of our COVID-secure measures in February, with a view to implementing any changes in March. Our Risk Assessment remains in place, we will continue to live-stream services where you see the fbl icon. Click on the icon or go to our online worship page to join in.

Currently our guidance is:

  • We recommend that you wear a face covering, if you are able. 
  • We recommend that you avoid close contact where possible.
  • We recommend that we spread ourselves out around the church as much as possible.
  • We will not be sharing the chalice at communion services.
  • There are no COVID restrictions on seating or capacity.
  • There are no COVID restrictions on refreshments or hospitality.

 Make your faith count in a complex and divided world

This Lent we will be running Difference, a five session course that explores following Jesus in a conflicted world. We live in a messy world full of division – from the level of global conflict right down to our own relationships. Difference equips us to cross divides, navigate disagreement and pursue a just and flourishing world. Archbishop Justin Welby says, “Reconciliation is not the ending of all difference, but the transformation of how we deal with difference.” He has brought together leading thinkers and peacemakers to create a course to help us join in with God’s work of restoring brokenness and transforming relationships. This course will run over five weeks in Lent. There will be afternoon and evening sessions, in person and via Zoom if people want. We'll be encouraging people to sign up to a particular group. There'll be more details in the coming weeks, and you can find out more at https://difference.rln.global.

Discover the power of faith in a conflicted world.

On Sunday, February 27th we will have a very special Sunday with Pet Blessing Services in both churches. Come along to Holy Trinity, Prestwood at the special time of 10am or to St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden at 11.15am, and bring your pets with you! The services will last just 45 minutes and are an opportunity for anyone with a pet to bring it along (or to bring a picture if that's easier!) for a blessing. We will give thanks to God for the role that animals play in our lives, especially over the last two years of pandemic when pets have been a lifeline for many. There will be more details in the next few weeks. The service at HTP will not be a communion service. Come along at 8 o'clock on that day for communion.

We are delighted that Holy Trinity's churchyard has been included in the Caring for God's Acre 'Burial Grounds to Inspire' project. Caring for God’s Acre was established in 2000 and is a national charity, promoting the conservation of burial sites and supporting the volunteers who look after and maintain them. Often these sites have been set apart for centuries and as such offer much needed refuge for our native wildlife of all varieties – plants, mammals, invertebrates, reptiles. 'Burial Grounds to Inspire' is a selection of burial grounds from across the UK which they would recommend visiting if you are looking for a well managed site rich in wildlife and heritage. You can find our page, which of course mentions our internationally important fungi habitat, here https://www.caringforgodsacre.org.uk/churchyard/prestwood-holy-trinity/.

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.

Mens' Breakfast has restarted at the beginning of every month from 8:30 - 10:30am.  The next one will be on Saturday 5th February in Holy Trinity Church Hall.
