On a lovely June Sunday morning we had our Rogation Walk. As Father Stephen pointed out the boundaries of our Parish stretch from Ham in the south east to Hunston in the north west and it would take several hours to walk the whole way. Our route was more limited, after an opening prayer from the Sunday School, we set off to the Barn in Church Farm Lane, where there was a reading, a prayer, and a verse of All Things Bright  and Beautiful. We then proceeded to the new grave yard extension, where the young calves in the field next door came over to join in, From there to the Garden of Scantlings off Church Lane, through into the Glebe field, where the horses joined us, and back to the Church. A reading a prayer and a verse at each stop. Once back in Church we sang 'For the Beauty of the Earth' and received a parting blessing.  We were treated, both before and after the service, to piano duets played by Joanna Chivers Gibb and Beryl Rodd. This was a fantastic performance and completed the service perfectly.This was followed by coffee. A wonderful early summer service.
