Plough Sunday
We hope that you will be able to join us for our Family Service on Plough Sunday at Little Tey Church on Sunday 14th January 2018 when we give thanks for the land and pray for God’s blessing upon those who work on the land and for the agricultural year ahead. An old fashioned plough will be brought in to church; something that the children and many of us may not have seen before so please do come along and you will be sure of a great welcome. Refreshments will be served.

Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make the Shepherd’s Pie event such a great success and to everyone who came along on the evening; your support, kindness and generosity towards this event and throughout the year are very gratefully appreciated. Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
