Churchyard tidy - no parking
Our next Churchyard tidying day is next Thursday 22nd from around 10am (or after the Eucharist if you’re coming to that!). Volunteers from Dandara Living and the Chiltern Rangers will be clearing overgrown foliage, tidying grave-slab edges, and trimming trees (where we have permission) They will also plant more wildflower seeds. There will therefore be no parking in the church yard that day as there will be machinery on the path – sorry about that. Quick drop-off will still be possible in Castle Street by the War Memorial path. Derek Lancaster
Fr Anthony would like some help for the Easter breakfast after the dawn service, anything from cooking the bacon to doing some shopping. If you’re feeling enthusiastic, please email him (email@example.com)

Spring clean & clear

We are pleased to have artwork from pupils of Wycombe Abbey school on display in our church Gallery this half term.
Two possible Lent books will be available in church and suggested for reading:
Tarry Awhile the Archbishop of Canterbury's Lent book 2024
Tarry Awhile centres the stories of often overlooked people and communities, offering wisdom for all people who hope to encounter God in the midst of wearying times. It provides fresh reflections on familiar biblical passages, and draws on personal stories, theology and the spiritual wisdom of ancestors who have gone before us.
Reading the Bible Through Lent by Adrian Graffy, is the perfect accompaniment to Lenten study and reflection using the scripture readings of the Catholic liturgy. For every day of Lent, it provides the Bible readings for the day (taken from the Revised New Jerusalem Bible), with a short commentary, two questions for personal reflection and two prayers – all written by the Revd Dr Adrian Graffy, a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission – enabling the Bible to be read in the contemplative tradition of Lectio Divina.
Lent groups will be based on The Chosen TV series and notes written by Rev Ant Dixon of St Andrews. Lent groups will be on:
· Monday evening in person with Revd. Jackie in Malmers Well Road
· Tuesday evening online with Derek
· Wednesday evening with Fr. Anthony at the Vicarage
· Friday lunchtime with Robyn in church. Sign-up sheets are at the back of church.

All Saints Plus
Tuesdays at 8pm.
Join Zoom Meeting
Meeting ID: 350 700 5392
This is a weekly opportunity to get together online and explore the gospel set for the following Sunday. We’ll study the passage and consider what it means for us – and you don’t need any experience or knowledge to join in! Then there will be time to catch up about all that’s going on in our community and we’ll end with a short time of prayer. Join us on Zoom from 8-9pm every Tuesday. You don’t need to commit to joining every week, but we’d love to see a regular group build up to explore our faith together.
After a long period of inactivity owing to Covid restrictions, the bellringers are back to a more normal pattern of service ringing and practices. A couple have moved away during the lockdown period and our numbers are now lower than we would like. We have rung eight bells on a couple of occasions recently but, with a total of 14 bells in the tower, we could do with a few more ringers to enable more of our bells to be rung. We would love to hear from anyone who would like to learn to ring, or from any “lapsed” ringers, or from any ringers who have moved into the area and would be interested in continuing this rewarding activity. If you fall into any of these categories, or know someone who does, please contact Tricia Newton at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the church office. A warm welcome awaits you!
