Impact - Holy Trinity, Prestwood

We make an impact as a church by living out the good news of Jesus Christ and building the Kingdom of God. In our worship, our prayer and our sharing in bread and wine we invite Jesus into our lives to empower us for this task—we say, "Your Kingdom come." By working for Social Justice, building community, acts of loving service, and giving and recieving hospitality the Kingdom of God comes near—we say, "Your will be done." Through a thoroughly inclusive welcome and by serving the needs of our parish we try to notice what God is doing and join in—that it may be, "In earth as in heaven."

On average 24 'events' take place here each week.

On average 400 people come through our site every week.

About 40% of our footfall comes from the wider community using our buildings.

Below you'll find some of the ways we try to have an impact in our parish. Other things that happen here can be found on our Community Activities page.

If there's something you'd like to see that isn't here and want to help make it happen, let us know.

The Prestwood Distribution Centre operates from the Annexe behind the Church Hall on Friday mornings between 10-12. Clients with a food voucher, obtained from Referral Partners such as the Citizens Advice Bureau, can collect food boxes to provide themselves and their family with three days worth of food. There is a welcome for clients as well as a space to chat. We can signpost clients to other local support agencies and also offer prayer.

We are continuing to build links with Christians Against Poverty and the Debt Centre in Chesham. Currently we are recruiting befrienders to work alongside debt counsellors, offering support to those in need.

We have a team on Kiva, and through it we've lent over $16,000! Join our team today.

More than 1.7 billion people around the world are unbanked and can’t access the financial services they need. Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 in San Francisco, with a mission to expand financial access to help underserved communities thrive.

They do this by crowdfunding loans and unlocking capital for the underserved, improving the quality and cost of financial services, and addressing the underlying barriers to financial access around the world. Through Kiva's work, students can pay for tuition, women can start businesses, farmers are able to invest in equipment and families can afford needed emergency care.
By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, you can be part of the solution and make a real difference in someone’s life. 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans.

Men’s Breakfasts meet from 8-30am to 10-00am on the first Saturday of the month in the Church Hall (except in August). There's an invited speaker to talk on their specialist subject at each meeting. We will supply the food (full English!) at a price to cover the costs of £5. All gentlemen welcome!

Holy Trinity, Prestwood has a large and well-loved churchyard. It is the final resting place for many villagers, and their friends and relatives spend time rememebring them and tending their graves. Due to the amazing care over the years of our dedicated team of volunteers, with careful regular mowing and good management, our churchyard is now also an important and valuable example of an increasingly rare grassland site. In fact, with 23 different varieties of waxcap mushrooms, we are designated as an internationally important waxcap grassland. Many thanks to our dedicated volunteers who help to manage the churchyard. We need more of you! If you would like to volunteer some time all equipment and training is provided. Please speak to the Rector.

Table tennisThe Table Tennis Club meets in the Church Hall at 7.30 pm on Monday evenings excepting Bank Holidays.  We have two tables, and bats can be borrowed if necessary.  We welcome players of all standards including school children accompanied by a parent.  Please come along if you would like any further details of this friendly group.

Pot Luck lunches are a social gathering where anyone and everyone can come along and enjoy a lunch together. We meet in the Church hall at 1.15pm on the first Friday of every month, bringing a contribution to the lunch - a casserole, a pizza,  or a pudding of some sort, anything that can be eaten. We ask for a donation of £1.50 that go towards church funds.
We usually have a three course meal, starting with homemade soup, then a selection of main meals followed by pudding, with tea/coffee to finish. The pot luck bit is that we never know if we will have all main meals or all puddings, the ratio is always interesting!
The lunches usually last about an hour and a half—please come along!
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.
