Mothering Sunday Service – 14/03/21

This Sunday, to celebrate Mothering Sunday, the fourth Sunday in Lent, we will have an informal Sunday Together worship service via Zoom at 10.30am. Come along and connect with others! Together, we will explore the theme of ‘sharing’ – both a motherly sharing for Mothering Sunday and Jesus’ selfless sharing of himself with us. The service will be suitable for all the family, with music, prayers and optional activities. Please have paper and pens/pencils handy. The readings for this service will be John 19: 25b-27 and Philippians 2: 1-11. The service booklet, which can be used in conjunction with this service, is available to view/download here. For details of how to join, please get in touch via the Contact Us page.

Re-opening of the church building

On Sunday 28th March, Palm Sunday, at 10.30am, we will open our building again for public worship, for the first time since the 3rd of January. Whether you are able to join us or not, this will be a joyful event for both the church community and parish. Due to Covid restrictions, places for our onsite services are limited and must be pre-booked by texting: 07960626938.

Prayer

God of celebration, who rejoices with those who rejoice,

we pray for those for whom Mothering Sunday

is a time of thanksgiving and joy.

God of compassion, who weeps with those who weep,

we pray for those for whom Mothering Sunday

is a time of heartache and pain.

God of community, who calls the children to come to him,

we thank you that your love abounds

for families of every kind.

God of comfort, who gathers us as a hen gather its chicks,

we thank you that your love surrounds

the disappointed and hurt.

God of every circumstance, we bring our thanks and praise

that we belong to your family 

as your beloved children.

Amen.
