Alternative Service for Mothering Sunday Weekend


On Saturday 10th March we’re holding an alternative service for Mothering Sunday Weekend.

This service is for those who might normally avoid church on Mothering Sunday.  It will offer a special place for anyone (women or men) who finds Mothering Sunday difficult, whatever your story.

It may be you’re grieving the loss of a mother, the loss of a child, or baby through miscarriage.

It may be you are struggling with a relationship with a mother that is difficult, or struggling with infertility or childlessness, singleness or not being able to create the shape of a family your heart has desired.

This will be an informal gathering, using liturgy, stories and poems to acknowledge the bittersweet emotions surrounding Mothering Sunday, offering a space both to grieve and to invite the God who loves us into our stories of struggle.
