Last sunday Rev. Trevor Davis conducted a delightful Rogation Service immediately following the 10.15 am Holy Communion Service.
The service was well attended by local farmers and included a walk to Tom Bramall’s farm where we were introduced to two three-day old calves.
Prayers were offered at each of the stations on the walk and the service concluded in the Church Hall with the singing of “ We Plough the fields and scatter…”
Bell Ringers come second at Striking Competition
The bell ringers came second at the area striking competition, beating teams from the cathedral and other local towers. The judge was particularly impressed with patches of very impressive ringing with only mild speed variation.
Many thanks to the band that took part!

A big “Thank You” to everyone who made the Garden Party such a great success. To those who organised it and gave their time to serving, and also to everyone who came. Wonderfully it was dry throughout the evening (and even some sunshine!) and we raised £1097 for the Helen Keller School in Jerusalem. Jules
