Mothering Sunday

Sunday 11 March 2018
10am

Mothering Sunday is celebrated on the fourth Sunday in Lent.  It is the day of the year when we give thanks to God for the loving care of our mothers, and children of all ages say 'thank you' to their mothers by giving them presents, flowers and cards that they have made or chosen.  It has a two-fold origin from the times when people began to move away from the places where they grew up in order to find work.  It was the one day in the year when people would return to worship in their home or 'mother' church.  It also became a day when children who had gone away to work as domestic servants or apprentices were given a day off to visit their mother and family, and brought with them a simnel cake.

We invite you to come to your 'mother' church this Mothering Sunday to give thanks to God for your mother and to receive a bunch of flowers for them.  Each of our three churches has a family service on Mothering Sunday at 10am.
