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.

Hymns:

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
