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.
