Almighty God, you show to those who are in error the light of your truth, that they may return to the way of righteousness: grant to all those who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, that they may reject those things that are contrary to their profession, and follow all such things as are agreeable to the same; through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

?????? Questions, Questions ???????
Is there a question you’ve been longing to ask about faith or church, but never felt there’s the right moment to say so? Over the Lent period you will find a box and question slips in every church, where can write down the things that are intriguing, challenging or bothering you. We will endeavour to answer them during Lent course or in our final ‘Challenge/Grill’ session. Questions can be anonymous, but please write as clearly as possible!

Can you help with mowing?
We urgently need some more volunteers to mow in Shrewton Churchyard during 2018 if we am to keep the task down to its current level. We mow the churchyard every two weeks and with 12 people on the rota the task only comes round 3 times in the year which is not a huge burden and only takes just over one hour per mow. If so, please let the church office have your contact details and we will pass them on to the mowing co-ordinator! Thank you.
