Mothering Sunday

Home » News » Mothering Sunday

This Sunday 11th March 2018 is Mothering Sunday. Traditionally, it was a day when children who were 'in service' as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family. Today it is a day when children give presents, flowers, and home-made cards to their mothers.

This year, the children and young people of the J Team will present something different. They will be planning and leading our 10.30am: Family & Brigades Service, supported by the Youth Choir. Based on their thoughtful, well-planned and well-led services of the past mothers and the rest of us look forward to it.
