Today our benefice celebrated all the wonderful things that mothers bring to our world. Of course it was also a time when we remembered those who had lost their mother or have had difficulty with motherhood.
The photo is from the St Mary’s service where the children were given the chance to give flowers to their mother. It was a great service in which the children behaved really well and had a lot of fun. Vicar Ben reminded us that the church is a community comprised of people from old to young, in which we all have a responsibility to help and look out for each other – just as mothers do with their family.
Happy Mother’s Day to all mums!
