THE COLLECT FOR TODAY
Blessed Lord, who caused all holy scriptures to be written for our learning: help us so to hear them, to read, mark, learn and inwardly digest them that, through patience, and the comfort of your holy word, we may embrace and for ever hold fast the hope of everlasting life, which you have given us in our Saviour Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
We are very sorry to announce the death of Margaret Errington, who lived for a while in Shrewton, and moved last summer. We remember her sons and their families in our prayers.

TEMPORARY RE-ORDERING IN ST MARY’S CHURCH, SHREWTON
We have been given permission to temporarily remove 4 pews in the rear north aisle of the church, with a view to making a faculty application for their permanent removal. The space would be left open, in order to make access to the Books of Remembrance more straightforward. We have just put into the church 24 chairs- again for a trial period of 6 weeks-which could be used at any big service or event where additional seating is required. Please let us know if you have any comments during the course of this trial. Thank you.
