Mothering Sunday – St Stephen in Brannel

26th March 2017

Mothering Sunday, or Mother’s Day is such a special time. Traditionally families would worship together to give thanks for their mothers at their ‘Mother Church’, give gifts of flowers, and have a feast mid-way through Lent. This is why Mothering Sunday is sometimes known as ‘refreshment Sunday’ – any Lenten fasts can be broken.  Bring mum, grandma and the children for a special Mothering Sunday Service at 9.30am at St George’s or 11am at St Stephen. We’ll bring the flowers! The services will be short to allow plenty of time for a family lunch out or time together. Here are some ideas from the Christenings website for celebrating Mothering Sunday at home and at church. If you would like to know more about Christenings (Baptisms) do explore the website or have a chat with Emma. We have had a wonderful lot of baptisms booked, so if you are thinking of a specific date in the summer, please do book soon!
