This Sunday (30th March) was Mothering Sunday. The service was well attended and everybody enjoyed it. Rosemary talked about the different origins of Mothering Sunday.

The mothers union made them and the flowers looked really pretty…
On Monday evenings in Lent (31st March, 7th April, 14th April) we have contemplative prayer at 5pm – a time of silent prayer, which lasts for about 25 minutes.
On the 29th March, we had our Junior Church coffee morning. It was a great success! The weather was perfect, so we actually could drink our coffee in the garden and we had many little helpers from Junior Church.
