Mother’s Day Runaways

Mother's Day Runaways

A service at St Paul’s for those who find Mother’s Day difficult.

We are hosting a Mother’s Day Runaway service on the evening before Mothering Sunday.

Many people avoid church on Mothering Sunday and the Mother’s Day Runaway service aims to offer a safe space for those who find the day difficult for whatever reason.

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.

Join us at this informal gathering at St Paul’s and be be guided through an hour-long service. This includes liturgy, poetry, music and stories acknowledging the bittersweet emotions surrounding Mothering Sunday, offering you the space to grieve, enabling us to lament and inviting the God who loves us into our stories of struggle.
