Rogating Pitsmoor

This afternoon we walked the Parish, Beat the Bounds and generally rogated Pitsmoor. An ancient tradition continued in a very modern way, through our amazing, beautiful parish.

More pics to follow (and well done especially to everyone who went all the way round, rather than ducking out half way through to listen to the football…) – here’s a start:

Confirmations with the new Bishop of Doncaster

Last night saw the confirmation of 9 people at Christ Church, with the new Bishop of Doncaster the Rt Rev Peter Burrows.  The church was packed, the atmosphere full of celebration, and there was a true sense of God’s presence with us.
