Six churches came together for a special Palm Sunday service taken by the Bishop of Ely, the Right Rev Stephen Conway, at St James’ Church in Newton.

The congregation was joined by the churches of St Paul’s in Gorefield, St Leonard’s in Leverington, St Giles in Tydd, St Mary’s in Wisbech St Mary and Emanuel in Parson Drove. They formed a procession and walked from Gorefield to Newton.

Bishop Stephen, pictured with Rev Sandra Gardner, also consecrated a piece of land that had been donated to the church.
