Mothering Sunday 2016

John Stanyard led our Mothers’ Day Service on 6th March 2016.   He began by praying for our mums and for all those for whom Mothering Sunday is a difficult time. The meeting included the question is it Mothers Day or Mothering Sunday? After being given an explanation of how the two days came about in history, the young folk decided that in the UK today was Mothering Sunday. The Singing Company sang a special song called ‘My Mum” which brought a few smiles and chuckles from both those singing and those in the congregation. There were tributes paid to mums and grandmas and the usual distribution of flowers and there was also time where those who no longer have their mums could collect a flower and place it in a special vase in remembrance of them. Thank you John for all the thought and preparation you put into this lovely service.
