Mothering Sunday –

Our journey from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday will soon bring us to the halfway point, the fourth Sunday of Lent, Laetare Sunday or, as it is more popularly known, Mothering Sunday. 

Mothering Sunday has it’s origins in the Middle Ages as a day when people would visit their mother churches, that is, the churches they were baptised in. In the early twentieth century this ancient observance was revitalised as a broader celebration of the Mother Church, mothers and motherhood. 

 Today Mothering Sunday is celebrated in Churches to acknowledge and to thank God for the love, protection, nurturing and care of mothers, to affirm our invitation and acceptance as children of God.  

 We hope you will join us in our celebrations across the Cluster this coming Mothering Sunday.
