Families going home to their Mother Church
The Anglican Church of
Saint Mary the Virgin
Mothering Sunday Service
March 30 at 10.30
Families going home to their Mother Church on the fourth Sunday in Lent has been a
tradition since the 1600’s
The children would pick wild flowers along the way to place in church and some to give to their mothers. I remember many years cycling out into the Warwickshire countryside to pick bunches of wild violets for my mother.
Mothers are special, why not spoil your mother this Sunday?
We are going to give thanks to God for all mothers this week at our Sunday Service
Come and join us!
Q. What would life be like without a mother?
A. Don’t know, without a mother I wouldn't exist.
The Church is always open for personal prayer and meditation.
