More about this service
Mothering Sunday is not always a daffodil filled happy day. For some of us it brings painful memories and lost dreams to the surface.
Isolation brought about by a global pandemic, our loss of mother-figures, childlessness, miscarriage, child loss for whatever reason and at any age, poor family relationships, depression, despair - there are many reasons why we can find today a difficult one to celebrate.
This service invites everyone to find peace, healing and hope. You do not have to follow Jesus, or follow Jesus very well to take part.
There are a number of ways that you can find some space to take time for yourself today.
The service is available as a PDF download that you can read on a computer or smart device.
The service will also be recorded and will be available through YouTube (on the St Andrew’s Sedgley YouTube channel) and social media.
Please join in, and also share the links and the booklet with people who you think might value a little space for themselves and for God this weekend.
