Fourth Sunday in Lent 

Service Date: 26 March, 2017

Worship was led by the Revd. Robert Beard who preached on the origins of Mothering Sunday , its distinction with Mothers’ Day, and the concept of a nurturing church.   Mothering Sunday falls on the Fourth Sunday in Lent, a period of preparation and nurturing. The Early Church developed that Sunday into a celebration in honour of the Mother of Jesus  who provided nurture to pious christians. We to-day are nurtured by Christ and have a reponsibility to nurture in return.

All the women in the congregation were given a spray of daffodils in recognition of their caring and nurturing role.


Rejoice and Sing 378  Awake, my soul

Rejoice and Sing 677  The God of love my Shepherd is

Rejoice and Sing 349  I heard the voice of Jesus say

Rejoice and Sing 601  Christ is the world’s true light
