Help Us make Mothering Sunday special

Mothering Sunday is on March 14 and we will be holding special services in church and online. What’s more, we need your help.

If there is a new baby in the family who was born during the pandemic, we’d love to include a picture in our online service. Please do send a picture of your little one to Alan Crawley.

Also, could you video your young children recording a message saying ‘I love you Mummy’ or something similar? Again, we’d love to put that in the online service so please send your video to Alan.

The service will be here on March 14.

We will also be holding services in church with daffodils for mothers and other special people, and lots to get all ages involved.

We have taken precautions to keep our churches Covid-secure (please follow the guidelines) and we welcome you all to the services which will be at St John’s, Hale, at 9.30am, St George’s, Badshot Lea, at 10am, and St Mark’s, Upper Hale, at 11am.

Ash Wednesday during lockdown

Wednesday (17th) is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent, though for most of us it has felt like Lent for a long time.

On Ash Wednesday many Christians go to church and have a mark of ashes placed on their foreheads as a symbol of repentance and following God. This year there are still services but there are differences as we will be following Covid guidelines.

There will be a service at St Mark’s at 12pm and St John’s at 7.30pm and there will also be a service here online and on Facebook and YouTube from 9am. You will need to bring your own ash suitable to place on your forehead and if you need advice on how to make it, watch this video here, courtesy of St Nics, Durham:
