Prestwood on Sea will be held this year on Thursdays 16, 23 and 30 August in the Methodist Church/Halls High Street Prestwood from 11am-3.15pm.  Please come and join other local older residents for a sociable day of good food, entertainment and friendship.  Transport can be arranged from Prestwood & Great Kingshill and special diets catered for, if notified in advance.   Please book your place by contacting Mary Wiles (866783) or Mary Spooner (862431)

There will be overnight roadworks (starting at 7pm) from May 20 to May 31 on Wycombe Road. There will be access to the church, even though there will be 'Road Closed' signs, if you ask nicely!

Work outside the church itself will be at the start of the cycle, the 15th and 16th. After that, depending on where they are working, you will be best off approaching the church from either the North (Prestwood side) or South (Kingshill side). This is a guide (though subject to change...)

15-18  - Lodge Lane to Peterley Lane (around the church)

19-22 - Approach from North

23-24 - Approach from South

On Sunday 27th May at 11am we will be celebrating the Patronal Festival of Holy Trinity Prestwood. Our preacher will be the Reverend Eric Muhl, Rector of the Swedish Church in London. This will be a combined benefice service, followed by some celebratory drinks and some nibbles. It will be the only service taking place on this day in the benefice and we hope as many of you as possible will join in the celebrations!

Thank you to all who attended the church's APCM on Sunday, April 22. We thanked many people, including Gill Hart and Doreen Clarke who step down as Church Wardens. We welcomed Dick Rivett as a new churchwarden and Nigel Bicknell as a new PCC member. We still have a vacancy for a second Church Warden. Please think, talk and pray about this roile and who could fill it.

Unbelievably (to me, at least) my training period is coming to an end and I am due to be ordained Deacon by the Bishop of Oxford at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford on Saturday 30 June.  The Cathedral service is at 10.00am (doors open at 9.00am) and I would love to see anyone from Prestwood and Great Hampden who is able to join me there (see separate notice).  Whether or not you can come to the Cathedral, you are all warmly invited to join me for a celebratory buffet in Holy Trinity Church from 2pm onwards.  If the weather is fine (we can always hope!), you might like to bring a folding chair to sit outside.  More details will follow nearer the time, but book the date now. May I take this opportunity to thank you all for the love, support and encouragement that both Irene & I have received during my training.   Nigel Spoor. 

Oxford Trip 30 June 2018 - Nigel Spoor’s Ordination - Update

A coach holding about 35 people has now been formally booked for 30 June 2018: this will take us to Oxford for Nigel’s ordination (and bring us back in good time for the celebrations which follow).   There are still a few places (not many) on the ‘bus so please contact me (Email much preferred) if you wish to join the group.   The ‘bus will leave Holy Trinity car park at 08.00 (sharpish) and hopefully arrive by 09.30.     The service begins at 10.00 and lasts (I am informed by the Diocese) about 1.5 to 2 hours.

Final cost is around £15 per head depending on numbers.   Further details in early June will be sent to all participants.

The Parish Office is open from 9-12 am on Monday to Thursday for parish business. It is open from 9-12 am on Friday for Preschool business.

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.
