Join us at Algarkirk Village hall on May 26th for a Rogation Sunday Messy Church at 1:30pm.

Rogation Sunday is the day when the Church has traditionally offered prayer for God’s blessings on the fruits of the earth and the labours of those who produce our food.

The word “rogation” is from the Latin rogare, “to ask.” Historically, the Rogation Days (the three days before Ascension Day) were a period of fasting and abstinence, asking for God’s blessing on the crops for a bountiful harvest. Less of us today directly derive our livelihood from the production of food, yet it is good to be reminded of our dependence upon those who do and our responsibility for the environment.

Traditionally a common feature of Rogation days was the ceremony of beating the bounds, in which a procession of parishioners, led by the minister and churchwardens would proceed around the boundary of their parish and pray for its protection in the forthcoming year. As it is no longer practical to follow exact boundaries many services will be held that have a focus on specific elements of creation such as livestock, fields, orchards and gardens.

A prayer for Rogationtide:

Remember, Lord, your mercy and loving-kindness towards us.

Bless this good earth, and make it fruitful.

Bless our labour, and give us all things needed for our daily lives.

Bless the homes of our parish and all who live within them.

Bless our common life and our care for our neighbour.

Hear us, good Lord. Amen.

We have launched a crowdfunding appeal to raise money for the restoration project. We need pledges of £300,000 before mid summer. Much will come from official heritage charities, but we have to raise at least £50,000 ourselves. Please contribut if you can: every little helps.

And PLEASE, share this appeal. THANK YOU!

At Algarkirk Parish Church we have cordoned off the area beneath the South Transept ( Chapel) and South Aisle with red and white tape. Please do not enter these areas for cleaning or any other purposes as there exists a risk that the timbers affected by dry rot may collapse. It is probably a small risk, but it exists and the consequences of anybody being on the receiving end is too great to contemplate.
