Plough Sunday Farmers’ Service
There is an old tradition of the Sunday after the Epiphany being observed as Plough Sunday, the day on which there were prayers for the farming year. (Plough Sunday took its name from Plough Monday, the day when people traditionally returned to work after the Epiphany). We held a Plough Sunday Service on this Sunday last year, welcoming Mr Sam Harper as our preacher, and had a congregation of fifty. We will be having the service in Mountrath Church at 7 pm on Sunday, 8th January when Mr James Bennett from Lacca will be our speaker. All farmers (and others!), whatever their parish or denomination, are invited.
