On the eve of Mothering Sunday, our Mother’s Day Runaways service offers a safe space for those who find the day difficult.

If you normally avoid church on Mothering Sunday because you find it too painful for whatever reason, this quiet, reflective service has been designed with you in mind.  

You could be grieving the loss of a mother,  a child or a baby through miscarriage or if you’re struggling with infertility or childlessness, singleness or a difficult relationship or perhaps you never even knew your mother, this informal gathering is to help you acknowledge the bittersweet emotions you may feel surrounding Mothering Sunday, 

You will be guided through an hour-long service including liturgy, poetry, music and stories, offering you the space to grieve and lament while inviting God, who loves us, into our stories of struggle. 

  • Open to all.
