MOBILITY - HELP NEEDED

There are people in our villages who would love to come to church or join a group, or who need or like company, or attend an event, go to the lunch club, etc, but who are unable to walk far or at all, or have no transport. Would you be prepared to join together with others to provide such people with lifts to and from?



COULD YOU VOLUNTEER YOUR TIME AND TALENTS?

to help us deal with a variety of jobs to keep our buildings & grounds in reasonable repair?


Or, in our other activities, be a part of or help everything to run smoothly & efficiently, from washing up, cleaning, serving tea, setting up and/or tidying away; you name it,

we probably need it.  


Join a Rota - we have a whole range of those including worship-related duties - the more people on a Rota, the less frequently you have to do it, and you can swap duties with others on the Rota to cover when you're unable to. Become part of the team.


MAYBE YOUR PARTICULAR TALENTS OR SKILLS CAN HELP IN OTHER WAYS

For instance, we need to replace, repair or refit fixtures & fittings in each Church & the Church Centre, & exterior notice boards and other signs - could you donate your skills & time to do that? Or your time & energy to periodically fill the potholes in the Christ Church Car Park, for instance?


Maybe you have musical talents, and would like to join with our musicians in our worship?

Maybe you like Fundraising? Organising, Leading, Flower Arranging...

Maybe...it's something else you'd like to contribute


Please call the Church Office on 01494-715195


Help with the Church Yard at Holy Trinity Penn Street

   The High Wycombe Branch of the Royal Artillery Association recently decided to help with the cost of maintaining the churchyard at Holy Trinity Church Penn Street which contains a memorial to a distinguished Royal Artillery soldier, Sir Frances Warde. He fought in the Crimean War, was present at Cadiz, helped Wellington defeat Napoleon at Waterloo, and was knighted in 1873.

   Our photograph shows Mr Stuart Reid, Branch Chairman, presenting the cheque to Mrs Joan Wainman, Church Warden, Holy Trinity Church, Penn Street.



HIGH PERFORMING SCHOOL

   Curzon School, Penn Street, was assessed by an RE Quality Mark Inspector in early summer, and the schools regular RE lessons gained high praise as did the Christian distinctiveness on the institution.


   Pupils demonstrated knowledge of a wide range of religions and through the Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) enjoyed visits to a Mandhir, a Sikh Temple and a Jamia Masjid Mosque in Slough. This enabled strong links to be forged for the school.


   The school also credits recent improvements to courses attended by staff, led by schools advisers from the Diocese of Oxford and the Local Authority. From 'The Door'

CHRIST CHURCH, HOLMER GREEN

The heating has failed in Christ Church, and the cost of repairing it would be about £11,000, which we cannot afford in our current financial situation. Christ Church itself will therefore closed from early October to late March, and services held in the adjacent Church Centre (HP15 6XQ).

Please see the Worship page which will always show in which of our

three venues Services will be held each month.


If you would be willing to donate towards this cost - we have to look after the repair and maintenance all-year round of

three buildings - that would be so very much appreciated. Please contact the Parish Office.


If you are a Taxpayer, donating through Gift Aid means that we can currently claim an extra 25p for every £1 you give.

It won’t cost you any extra.
