• The Departed and those who mourn their loss remembering especially Susan Townsend ( Funeral at Westerleigh Crematorium on Friday 15th September at 11.45am) and Paul Jackson (Funeral at St Marys’ Tetbury on Friday 8th September at 2.30pm). We give thanks for their lives and pray for God’s comfort for their family and friends.

• World issues: Friday 8th September is World Literacy Day – may people in every country, men and women, have access to literacy courses, and may children especially may have access to regular schooling

Save us, Lord our God…that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise. Ps.106 V47
