Blessing of Gardens & Gardeners (Plough Sunday)

Bring your seeds, your trowels, your overalls!

Welcome spring with an act of worship celebrating creation, life and growth.

In British tradition, Plough (Plow) Sunday is held on the Sunday after Epiphany, the Sunday between 7-13 January.  Sometimes arriving in their farm carts or tractors, farmers bring a ploughshare (a section of the plough’s blade) to church. The service includes prayers for a blessing of the land.
