This was a well attended, prayerful occasion with about 80 people from the joint churches attending. Thanks are due to the farms, and to all who attended: the clergy who led the prayers and to the talented, hard working ladies of our parish who put on a wonderful supper which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone. The commitment of all these people to ensure the success of the Rogation Sunday Service was exceptional and greatly appreciated. Heartfelt thanks to you all.
Greek Night - July 2015
Thank you to all who supported our Greek evening which raised a fantastic £801 for the Roof Restoration Fund. Special thanks to Paddy who inspired and organised the evening. The Greek dishes she and her family provided were wonderful. Special thanks also to Poppy for her delightful Greek singing and dancing.

Thank you to all that came to Rogation Sunday. It was lovely to see such diverse farms and how they are run. Thanks go to Birks Farm, Penny Farm and New Moss House Farm. Also to the parishioners of St Matthew’s Ballam who hosted us beautifully. Also thanks goes to all that brought the “Fancy Cakes”.
