Palm Sunday procession

A large crowd gathered in Melton Market Place on Palm Sunday (April 14th) to hear The Palm Sunday story from Matthew (21:1-9) before a procession into St Mary's Church for a Parish Communion Service.

While in the Market Place palms were blessed and Ride on, Ride on in Majesty was sung before the procession moved into the church while singing All Glory, laud and honour. The morning was led by Melton Team Parish Rector, the Revd Kevin Ashby and The Archdeacon of Leicester, The Venerable Richard Worsfold.
