Mother’s Day Runaways Service

A service for those who normally avoid church on Mothering Sunday.

The Mother’s Day Runaways service offers a safe space for those who find Mothering Sunday difficult.  Whatever your story, whether you’re grieving the loss of a mother, the loss of a child, or a baby through miscarriage, whether you’re struggling with infertility or childlessness, singleness or a difficult relationship, whether you never even knew your mother or any other reason why you might find Mothering Sunday painful, this quiet, reflective service has been designed with you in mind.  It will be an informal gathering, where you will be guided through an hour long service including liturgy, poetry, music and stories acknowledging the bittersweet emotions surrounding Mothering Sunday, offering the space to grieve, teaching us how to lament and inviting the God who loves us into our stories of struggle.
