1st July 2018 Withburga Festival Service

1st July 2018 Withburga Festival at St Nicholas


Following the service of Parish Communion, celebrating Withburga's Festival, the congregation processed behind the Clergy, Verger and choir to circle the well. Sally blessed the well and added salt to the water, before Verger, David Webster drew water from the well for the traditional 'sprinkling'. 


Accompanied by David and Dominique, Sally made sure that all those around the well were generously 'sprinkled' with the water from Withburga's well, before everybody returned through the great west door into church, to socialise and enjoy coffee/tea and biscuits. The sun shone brilliantly throughout the event.
