A new Curate for the Benefice

We’re delighted to announce that this summer we will be welcoming a new curate to the benefice. Kevin Lovell, who is being ordained on June 29, will serve as a full-time, stipendiary curate in Prestwood and Great Hampden. He is married to Gill, and they will be moving in to the Curate’s House in Prestwood in the Spring. This is really good news for both churches, and we look forward to getting to know Kevin and Gill, and sharing with them what God is doing in our communities. There’s more information in the Monthly Herald in Prestwood and the flyers in St Mary Magdalene’s. Please hold Kevin and Gilll in your prayers as they prepare for their move.

Follow me on Monday

Tues 1900-2000, March 12-April 9

Weds 1145-1245, March 13-April 10

This five week Lent course, Follow Me On Monday, is aimed to encourage us in our Christian discipleship in daily life and work. Our life in Christ has a rhythm of going out from and returning to the praise and sacramental worship of Sunday, expressing and exploring this within, and gathering it from, our life in the world. Our Christian calling is, quite simply and profoundly, to follow Jesus. He goes before us into our world and there we shall find him, as he promised. To this discipleship we bring the whole of us, all our faculties, all our senses in our thinking, our acting and our experiencing. The five elements of the course are entitled: “Faithful Following”, “Wholly Living, “Called to Partnership”, “Raising our Eyes” and “Go in Peace”. We meet in Holy Trinity, Prestwood and there will be refreshments served. All are welcome!
