Sunday 26th May is Rogation Sunday when we pray for the growing crops and the forthcoming harvest. Traditionally people ‘beat the bounds’ of their village but now we have a gentle walk followed by tea.
We shall meet at the Parish Room, next to Earl Stonham church, at 3pm, with children and/or dogs, and walk along the footpaths to Stonham Parva Church to meet another group from Stonham Aspal for a very short open air service including planting seeds in flowerpots. Then we shall all walk back to the Parish Room for afternoon tea. (If the weather is not good we shall walk back to Earl Stonham Church for the service). Non-walkers, please just come to tea from 4.30pm onwards.
