Plough Sunday worshippers make the promise

At their annual Plough Sunday service in Kirkby Malzeard, near Ripon, North Yorkshire, parishioners of St. Andrew’s church made the promise to come home safely from the fields during the year ahead (17 January)

Plough Sunday marks the start of the farming year and is an opportunity for farming communities to ask for God’s blessing on the land and their work. During the service, a ploughshare is brought into the church to receive a blessing.
