On Sunday 27th May at 11am we will be celebrating the Patronal Festival of Holy Trinity Prestwood with a combined benefice Patronal Festival Eucharist followed by some celebratory drinks and nibbles. This will be the only service taking place on this day in the benefice, so no service at 11.15am at St Mary Magdalene, Great Hampden, and we hope as many of you as possible will join in the celebrations.
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.
