We are part of the Welcome Network, supporting refugees in our community. Christians are called to love and welcome the stranger, whatever their cultural background. Every church has the privilege and opportunity to welcome and care for refugees and asylum seekers in some way. The Welcome Network identifies churches around the UK who are committed to welcoming refugees. This means that as refugees and asylum seekers move around the UK, they can easily find a church to welcome them into the community. There are lots of ways we can support refugees. Check out No Refugee Alone - Welcome Churches (https://welcomechurches.org/) for more information. Speak to the Rector or Amy  in the office to get involved.

This annual service is a chance to remember for good those whom we have loved and who have now died. It is a very simple and moving service, with music, readings and the opportunity to light a candle in memory of those we have lost.

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.
