Trinity Sunday

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.


It is hard to believe that Nigel and Irene have been with us for two years and that his ordination is fast approaching.  This most important occasion in Nigel's Christian journey is to take place in Oxford Cathedral, presided over by the Bishop on June 30th 2018 at 10.00. As Oxford is not the most convenient place to go to and to park, we are going to organise a coach for those from Holy Trinity Prestwood and St Mary Magdalene who wish to attend and support Nigel.    In order to arrive by 09.30, the coach will leave Holy Trinity at around 08.00. The service will be around 1.5 to 2 hrs and we will be back at HTP in good time to celebrate with Nigel.   Costs (ball-park) will be around £10-£15 per head depending on numbers of course. If you wish to join this trip, please contact Peter Baker,HTP PCC secretary, either by email (This email address is being protected from spambots.

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.
