Our Harvest Festival will take place on Sunday 16th September. By kind permission of the Davis family our Harvest Festival will again take place at Wren Davis, Collings Hanger Farm, Wycombe Road, Prestwood, HP16 0HP. The farm is just 150 yards north of the church on Wycombe Road. If the weather's dry we will have the service in the farmyard. If it's wet we will gather in the cow barn. There is plenty of parking at the farm, and comfortable seating too. Please bring your Harvest Gifts of donations for AVS Mama Bags (see additional notice for list of possible items to donate) or fresh produce to this service. After the service there will be the Harvest Smorgasbord.

At our Harvest Festival this year we will be continuing our involvement with African Village Support (AVS).
This year as usual please bring fresh produce but, instead of tinned and packaged goods, also bring donations of the following items for inclusion in a church collection for Mama Bags:

• baby clothes (0-6 months).
• booties
• hats and mittens
• blankets
• towels
• cotton wool
• underwear for mothers
• rubber gloves

Mama Bag provides basic items to help with hygiene during the birth and after care for new-borns and their mothers.
The proceeds of the auction of fresh produce will be given to AVS to help with transport costs of the Mama Bags.

Our now-traditional Harvest Smorgasbord will take place after our Harvest Festival at the farm. It's a lovely brunch and great way to end the service. You must book your tickets before the day. Tickets are £8.00, with donations for children, and are available from Doreen Clarke (863397).

On Sunday July 22nd we'll be celebrating St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden's Patronal Festival with Pimms, Petals and a Picnic! The Patronal festival service, in honour of Mary Magdalene, will be at 11.15am, followed directly by a picnic lunch in the churchyard. Great Hampden will be supplying the Pimms. Can you supply rose petals gathered from your garden and bring a picnic lunch? This is always a lovely way to mark the shift into summer, so please come along and bring your friends! There will be no services at Holy Trinity on July 22nd, everyone is invited to Great Hampden!

For two weeks in July we welcome Ian Miller on placement in the benefice.  Ian is an ordinand studying at Oak Hill theological college. He will be shadowing the Rector, Teresia and Nigel, and learning something about how a parish church operates. We should be meeting him on Sundays and at mid week services so please do talk to Ian and get to know him while he’s with us.

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)

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.
