The Reverend Kate Fergusson aged 90, has died peacefully on November 1st. Kate was our Deaconess at Holy Trinity Prestwood from 1982 to 1986. Much loved, she made many lasting friendships. A lady with strong opinions, a sharp mind and an unswerving belief in her God. Finally, in retirement, she was ordained priest in Salisbury Cathedral.

Please put 6.00pm on Sunday, December 2nd in you diaries, as, for the first time, we will be having an Advent Carol Service at Holy Trinity. This service of words and music will lead us from darkness to light, and start us on our Advent journey. Please come—All are welcome!

Have you thought about leading the intercessions in church on a Sunday morning? It can seem a daunting thing to do, but it can be a really rewarding and special ministry to exercise—one that everyone can do. We'd love you to feel confident in leading the Sunday Morning prayers, and we are arranging a Training Session in church on Sunday, November 18 at 4.00pm, for an hour. This is a chance to explore what the intercessions are and how to write them. No experience is necessary, and it doesn't mean you will be press ganged on to a rota! It is also a really useful way to explore and deepen your own prayer life, so we hope you will come along.
