Archived Stories The congregation of St Mary’s, Hemyock were joined by members of the local Baptist Chapel for the annual village Palm Sunday service held at the parish church. Prior to the service a large number walked through the village from the hall to the church led by Rev David Sherwood. Singing along the route was accompanied by Ron White and Nigel Atkinson on accordions.

During the service, the congregation of over 100 enjoyed a playlet, puppetry and singing before the blessing of palm crosses which were distributed to everyone.

Following the service the congregation enjoyed light refreshments served by members of the parish church.
