We are a mainly rural Group of Parishes and as such we celebrate the agricultural year not only with Harvest Festivals but also with Plough Sunday (early January) and Rogation.
Traditionally we leave church during the Rogation service to look out and pray over the fields and villages. This worked well when the service was held at Hameringham (2009) and Wilksby (2010) but this year the service was held at Mareham le Fen and views are limited so we decided to bring the Parish into the Church by projecting photographs onto a large screen.
Below are some of the photographs we used. All of them show a part of the Fen and Hill Group of Parishes.

May God who is the source of all goodness and growth pour his blessing upon all things created and upon us his children, that we may use his gifts to his glory and the welfare of all peoples.
