I have Seville oranges looking for willing volunteers to make them into marmalade to sell for church funds. The last I looked we only have 1 jar of whisky marmalade left over from the 120 jars made last year. The new stock will be going on sale to church members and customers of N and P Fruits at the Dairy in Prestwood. If interested please give me a call on 01494 865660 to arrange a pick-up time or I can deliver if local. You will need to supply the sugar and normal size jam jars (I have a stock of these if needed) and return the marmalade to me for labelling and covers. Thanks, Jean Green.

You may have noticed we have introduced a slide show of photos into the start of the service. Please send us photos to use! Anything you consider appropriate will do. Keep them coming over the weeks and months ahead please. Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Due to the national lockdown, the Toy Library will sadly have to remain closed for the next few weeks. We will aim to re-open as soon as the current restrictions are lifted. We have a wonderful range of excellent quality, clean toys available to borrow through our booking slots on Eventbrite and we’re really looking forward to welcoming you when it’s safe to do so. If you have already borrowed toys, please continue to enjoy them and spread the word to your family and friends.

A huge thank you is due to all the people who helped make Christmas happen this year. So many people reacted with imagination and speed to a very challenging, very difficult situation. But it is clear that we were able to hold on to the truth of Christmas and made it a special-if different-time for everyone who crossed our path. Thank you all so much. Special thanks must go to Fran, Kevin and Nigel, alongside all those who made the outside of the church such a symbol of hope and life. The tree and nativity Scene were lovely. Thank you all so much!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
