Special Service for Rogation Sunday 22 May
This service will be split between St Mary’s Church Dalham, beginning at 9.30 am, and All Saints’ Church Gazeley for Group Communion at 11.30 am.
It is based on the ancient practice of “Beating the parish Bounds”, where the congregation would process along the field boundaries and pray for a fertile season. Bishop Alastair Redfern, founder of The Clewer Initiative, provides an overview of this lesser-known church festival. https://theclewerinitiative.org/blog/what-is-rogation-sunday.
