Our Mothering Sunday service was a fun family event. We heard the story of a young mother who protected her child at the cost of her life and remembered Mary who stayed with her son until the end at the foot of the cross. Amazing examples of the extraordinary love a mother can have for her child.
The children made flower pot gifts, decorated gift bags and iced biscuits. A few of the biscuits survived and were given to the Mums as presents! In addition the children distributed beautiful bunches of daffodils to the ladies.
A highlight was having a church family with all three mothers and four generations all present at once. We had the privilege of a visit from a mother who was christened in the church in 1929.
It is wonderful to know God’s love for us is as a mother’s love for her child, unconditional and unending.
