Plough Sunday Message from the Bishop of Ripon

In ordinary years, Yorkshire’s farming community would be celebrating Plough Sunday at Ripon Cathedral today, but with the traditional service unable to take place, Bishop Helen-Ann, Bishop of Ripon, has made a short video to mark the important event.

The service, held in conjunction with the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, dates back to the Middle Ages when the ploughs were blessed and prayers offered for God’s continuing providence.
