Mothering Sunday is a chance to celebrate the mothers we had and the mothers in our communities. Whether they are our birth-mothers, adopted mothers or the brave women who raised us just because they knew we needed it. Here is a collection of free church resources you could use.
With Lent in full swing and Easter on the horizon, Mothering Sunday can catch up on us quicker than we expected. And as it comes each year, it can be hard to find a new angle on it. But lucky for us, numerous organisations have put out lots of free resources that can help us. Here's a collection of a few you could try.
Home for Good
Mothers aren't always the women who have given birth to us. They may have adopted us, supported our parents or been a good friend who helped raise us. Home for Good is a Christian adoption support charity who know well the spectrum of what it can mean to be someone's mum. They have put out a ton of free resources to try out this Mother's Day.
