Church of England Diocese of Exeter Parracombe

Plough Sunday

Our Plough Sunday service was well supported by members of the farming community and members of other congregations in the Lyn Group of churches who joined us. In her address, Bishop Jackie said that farming itself was an act of faith. Farmers planted a seed where it was then hidden from view. They had faith that it would germinate and grow and give a plentiful yield.

Thanks to Bishop Jackie and Reverend Samantha for conducting the service, members of Blackmoor Gate Young Farmers who brought in the plough, the young people who gave a stirling job giving the readings and all members of the Lyn Churches group who supported the service.

After the service, Bishop Jackie was presented with a bouquet as a thank you, and a bouquet was presented to Reverend Jean in thanks and recognition of her support with the ministry, sometimes in difficult circumstances.

Thank you members of Christ Church PCC for tea, coffee and very nice cake. Proceeds of the collection were donated to the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution.
