Rogation Sunday Service at Adams, Tenbury Road, Bockletonon Sunday 13th May 2012 at 10.30am      

Rogation Sunday is the day when we ask God to bless the crops (to ask is rogare in Latin), the farmers who work the land, and we can pray for our environment. In centuries past, Rogation Sunday also saw the Beating of the Bounds and could include elaborate methods to remind local people of their boundaries, such as ?bumping’ boys on prominent markers or stones, rolling them in brambles or ditches, or throwing them in a pond! Latterly congregations walked the boundaries of each parish, beating the markers with sticks and marking what had changed from last year; in our case it would just take too long. Today we will give thanks and pray for four of the key elements of our rural life ? Water, Fields and Gardens, Animals and the Farmers and People of our parishes. As we sing our hymns we will process to appropriate spots to be near the element concerned. Wear wellies and warm clothes, refreshments afterwards.
