The role of churchwarden is vital to a healthy parish church. Churchwardens are a support to the parish priest, responsible for their church, and help to plan for the future. We are blessed at Holy Trinity with a wonderful support team who do a lot of the management work. But both of our churchwardens are stepping down next month and we have no-one to take their place. We need two people to step forward and take their place on the team at a really exciting time on the life of Holy Trinity. Please pray for churchwardens to come forward, look around you and if you see someone who could take on this role, why not ask them? A Churchwarden can be working, retired, young or old, busy or with time to offer. Everyone has gifts!

The AGM of the church takes place on April 22nd after our service. We are looking for new church wardens and some new faces to join our PCC. Please consider yourself for these roles. If you'd like to find out more, please speak to the Rector, a churchwarden, or ferret out a current PCC member.

Saturday March 31st 10-12. A morning of activities for all the family. Build the Easter Garden, enjoy some singing and make some Easter crafts. Put it in your diaries and come and enjoy the fun!

This will follow the evening service and go on till 12.00 midnight. We require 2 people to be present in the church throughout this period. Please sign up on sheet at back of church for any slots you can fill.

It is a tradition at Easter that we make donations for flowers in memory of those we have loved and who have now died. Traditionally these were for lilies at the altar of repose. If you would like to make such a donation for flowers please fill in a slip at the back of the church with the name of the people to be remembered with your donation and pass to a warden or the office. Please use a gift aid envelope if you are a tax payer.

The Trinity Herald twice yearly magazine is produced by Holy Trinity and distributed to every house in the Parish of Prestwood and Great KIngshill. As well as giving news of events in local churches and organisations, it also provides a valuable place for obtaining details of local businesses, craftsmen etc. Peter Mace, who recently took over as Distribution Manager for the Trinity Herald is desperate to find some more people to help get the magazine out each time, as several long-standing helpers have now retired or moved away. It would be a great shame if this publication cannot continue to provide this valuable service to our community. If you can help in any way, either by delivering magazines house to house in a designated area or delivering bundles to the road distributors, please contact Peter at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Save the date! - The Spring Concert will be on May 12 at 7.30pm. See some familiar faces—but there will be new faces performing too!

Many of you will remember Michael and Michele Foot, who moved away last year, with fondness. Michael has just published his first novel, Moving On. It is a fast-paced novel exploring the theme of old age, and how it might be treated by a manipulative politician. It is this year's Lent Book! Michael has very kindly offered us copies to sell in support of the church. Please take a copy from the back of the church and make a suitable donation of about £4 in the wall safe, and enjoy the read.

For this year’s Lent Appeal we are continuing our involvement with African Village Support (AVS). Last year we raised the magnificent sum of over £3300 to provide water pumps for the village of Muyembe. This year we have been asked to raise money for an AVS project to support the most vulnerable families in Bulambuli District.

The majority of the most vulnerable people are elderly women above 60 years (about 80%); although there are several elderly men also above 60 years who are vulnerable. These elderly people are very vulnerable because they are generally weak due to their age and cannot therefore work to get any income to cater for their needs.  A great number of women between 40 – 60 years are also vulnerable because many of them are either widows, living with HIV/AIDS, or their husbands have abandoned them with all the children without any assistance. They are really miserable and have completely lost hope.

The other category are the children who in most cases are orphans staying with their vulnerable grandparents. These children lack support in terms of school fees, uniform, scholastic materials, clothes and even food to enable them go to school. 

It will cost approximately £1000 to support a family of 6 for a year this will provide shelter, bedding, basic items, food, educational support and health care. Donation envelopes are available at the back of church, which will enable you to gift aid your donation if you are able to, so please give generously.

Prayer is the heart of every Christian life, but many people feel uncomfortable praying in a small group. This is a shame, as it means we miss out on a wonderfully fulfilling part of our spiritual life. During Lent there will ten minutes of guided prayer after the service that anyone and everyone is invited to join in with. We will be praying over our personal, church, and community's Lent journeys to the Cross and Resurrection. Every week will be different, and anyone can opt in or out at any stage. There is no requirement to speak or to ask for anything. People will just bring their coffee, meet by the piano after the service to pray together for ten minutes, anyone can take part.

Followers of Christ are described in the New Testament as a royal priesthood and inheritors of the kingdom—people with incredible potential and enormous responsibility. Yet the selves we see in the mirror are flawed and failing, all too often tongue-tied and terrified.

'The King's Speech' is such a runaway success because it holds that mirror to our world and offers hope of overcoming the difficulties. It shows hope built out of friendship, trust and supportive love, and courage in the face of gathering evil.

Lent is traditionally a time for strengthening resolve, bringing believers together in trust and encouragement as they strive to follow their calling. The purpose of this course could be summed up in the words of the King's speech therapist: To give them faith in their voice and let them know a friend is listening. The course provides five group sessions on Wednesdays in Lent. It uses the film as a starting point, along with personal weekly reading, exploring more fully the issues raised, and Bible readings to root it in Christian values.

Wednesday Mornings will finish with soup and a roll.

Wednesday Evenings will start with coffee and biscuits.
