This year our Mothering Sunday will be a special service. Mothering Church has traditionally referred to the nurturing nature of the Church. More recently it has popularly been a celebration of motherhood and the sacrifices they make.
We view that both of these elements need celebrating. We want to celebrate the sacrifices and the work of mothers and we also want to remind ourselves that the Church at its best is a place of nurture and care – for anyone. Women play a large role in this care and nurturing in the church.
We will start our worship all together but there will also then be the opportunity to explore the theme of the morning in different ways. We will be offering five different options for people to choose from:
- A time of quiet reflection
- An arts and craft response
- Exploring through drama
- A talk
- A discussion group (using a Rob Bell video clip)
As usual we will be giving out bunches of flower to all ladies.
Whether you normally come to Springfield or not we would love to welcome you for this special service
