Mothering Sunday

Mothering Sunday

This Sunday, 26th March 2017, we will celebrate the vital role of mothering in our lives with a special service led by our worship leader Dinah Dudley and members of the congregation. Expect a mix of familiar hymns, readings and prayers concluding with chocolates & flowers! 

Traditionally, Mothering Sunday was a day for the members of 'daughter' churches to return to the 'mother' church and all praise God together. Nowadays, we tend to think of it as "Mothers' Day" although that is in fact a different tradition. Both are worth celebrating. It is about coming home and it is about celebrating the place of love and care in our lives. We give thanks for all the love and care we receive and for those who love and care for us and for others.

Followed by tea and coffee in the church hall.

Please come.

You will see from the history of Mothering Sunday (above) that it is a good day to return to church, even if you have not been there for a long while. Come and join us. Come home.
