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.
