    The passing of HRH Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh

    "The prayers of the whole Diocese of Oxford are with Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family today and in the coming days as we mourn the death of Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh.

    "We give thanks for Prince Philip’s long and extraordinary life, his faithful service to Queen and country, his support especially for young people, his humour, honesty and integrity and strong Christian faith and especially his steadfast support to the Queen over the long years of their marriage.

    "Philip has been at the centre of our national life for so many decades offering a model of strength and stability. He will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace and rise in glory, and may God’s peace and love be with all who mourn his passing, and most especially his immediate family."


    The Rt Revd Dr Steven Croft, Bishop of Oxford

                   Let us pray:

    God of our lives,
    we give thanks for the life of Prince Philip,
    for his love of our country,
    and for his devotion to duty.
    We entrust him now to your love and mercy,
    through our Redeemer Jesus Christ. Amen.

     

    Holy Trinity Church is open for private prayer on Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 4pm and on Sunday afternoon.

    Cassa’s New Role
    As most of you know, Cassa’s final day as our Vicar was on Easter Sunday.  She and her family have now moved to Wychert Vale, where she will become the new rector during her Service of Licensing on Thursday 22 April at 7.30pm. We are all invited to join in on Zoom. Cassa will be delighted to see us there and will welcome our support as she takes up her new role:

    Meeting ID: 858 4847 6303 Passcode: 868422

    We hope to arange a Sunday Afternoon Tea Party on 22 August when Cassa and the family will come back for what we hope will be a relaxed afternoon catching up and spending time together in a way that wasn't possible prior to her departure!

    How will we manage without her?
    Cassa's departure does not mean that life and worship in our parish stops. We have a wonderful team around to lead our services and support our community - Rev'd Jenny Tebboth, Rev'd Paul Henderson, Linda West our retired Licensed Lay Minister and Janna Holder our Children’s and Families minister. They are supported by Peter Miles and Garry Walton both of whom hold a Bishop's License to Preach. We are delighted to have support from Paul Bosson too. We will also benefit from time to time from ‘visiting’ members of clergy who are keen to support us.

     

    A letter from Rev'd Ian Brown, the Rector of our Benefice, on the occasion of his retirement:

    Dear Friends,

    It has been a great privilege and almost always a pleasure, to serve the church and community in ordained ministry these past nearly forty years. When Julie and I came here to the benefice in 2014, we envisaged that 2021 would most likely be the year of my retirement. It was just that we never mentioned it to anyone, although we imagined that, knowing my age, you could all do the mathematics…! What we never imagined were the circumstances surrounding our retirement. My last staff team meeting this week was conducted in the church vestry sitting socially distanced all wearing masks and surrounded by 5 mowing machines, retrieved for safe keeping from the church shed which had suffered a break in last week!

     

    Despite the rather surreal circumstances of our times and notwithstanding the loss of many loved ones and social liberties to this covid pandemic, we count it a great privilege to have shared time with you all here. Thank you for making our time here so happy. Thank you for your love and support. Thank you too for the challenges which you have shared with and sometimes posed to us as well. May the Lord bless you and keep you in every way. And do pray for your wardens, clergy and members of the Parochial church Councils in both parts of the benefice. All of these your leaders across the benefice, bear a weight of responsibility during vacancy. You will all need patience and forbearance with each other and in time, you will enjoy welcoming the person of God’s choice as your new Benefice Rector.  

    With love and prayers

    Ian Brown
