The Benefice of Holy Innocents’ Gt Barton and St Peter’s Thurston:
Both our Churches will be holding, Mothering Sunday Services on Sunday 31st March 2019, at 10.30am.
Everyone welcome to join us, come and join the service as a Family. There is a children’s corner at both Churches and refreshments will be served after the service.
Mothering Sunday Sunday is the fourth of Lent. Although it's often called
Mothers' Day it has no connection with the American festival of that name.
Traditionally, it was a day when children, mainly daughters, who had gone to
work as domestic servants were given a day off to visit their mother and family.
