The Church Office is open from 9-12 Monday to Thursday

Our toddler group is now closed for the Christmas holidays and will re-open on Thursday 10th January, and not on 3rd January as published in the Christmas notice sheet.

Jane Thom passed away on Monday morning (10th December). Jane was a friend to many, chaired SEARCH with wit and panache, and was a wonderful church warden who played a pivotal role in the life of our church. Jane's funeral will take place here on Thursday 3rd January 2019 at 1.30pm.

A huge thank you to Jean Green and everyone who helped her at the Peterley Christmas Fair. The grand total was £982.65, which is an amazing result. So well done, and thanks again, to all the contributors, bakers, jam makers, sellers, and everyone else who took part!

In the churchyard, on the South side of the Church, there are a number of self-set saplings of various varieties. If anyone would like any of these please let Dick Rivett know and arrange your own removal. Any not claimed by Christmas will be removed.

Teresia has announced that she has been appointed to be the Assistant Priest at the Swedish Church in London. Her responsibilities there will include the pastoral care of the Swedish population of Britain and Ireland. We expect Teresia's final Sunday in the benefice by Sunday February 10th, 2019. We will all be very sad to see Teresia leave the benefice, but this is an excellent role for the next stage in her ministry. She has been here for seven years, and there will be a great deal to celebrate over the next few months as we prepare for her final Christmas with us and her departure in February.

John Smith has taken some stunning aerial photos of Holy Trinity, using his drone. Check them out at http://www.htprestwood.org.uk/drone

If you have a church key, or would like to help keep the church open during the day and get a key, please go to www.htprestwood.org.uk/openchurch. Follow the simple instructions to sign up for specific occasions to lock or unlock the church. Please help us keep the church open on those days when we need some help!

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.

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!

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.

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.

 

Praise God, our refurbishment is complete and we are open! First Sunday back, December 13 9.30am. Here are some photograps of the building.
