On Sunday 11th March at 11am we celebrate Mother’s Day. Originally Mother’s Day had nothing to do with mothers at all. Rather it was a day for Christians to visit their "mother" church. On that day domestic servants were given the day off to return to their hometown and worship with their families. On their way home these servants would pick wild flowers to place in the church - or give to their mothers.
Over the years the day has evolved into an occasion for children to honour and give presents to their hardworking mothers.
On Mother’s Day children and adults will also honour their mothers and all mothers will receive flowers at the end of the service. Mothers and members of the Ladies Guild will help lead the service on that day. We would encourage everyone in the Parish and particularly Mothers to come along and celebrate Mother’s Day with us.
