Mothering Sunday - Keeping Hold of Precious Things


What is most precious to you?


© Copyright Derek Harper and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons LicenceAll of us have things in our lives we consider precious and we go to great lengths to make sure they are kept safe. It might be something valuable in monetary terms, like a mobile phone or a pair of shoes. It might be something with great emotional value like a wedding ring or a photograph. Whatever it is, we tend to take the time and the energy to protect our valuables against loss, theft and damage.

But what about our faith? It is said that 90% of students lose their faith at University. How can we ensure as individuals, as a church and as a society that we hold on to the precious gift of faith in Jesus Christ?

“Some things, especially family and faith, are far too precious to lose” said Rev'd Mark Chester. “It’s these things that we don’t even want to consider what life would be like without.”


On Sunday March 18,  we will focus on what is truly ‘precious’ and we invite everyone to come and join the conversation. Since March 18th is also Mothering Sunday, we’ll be thanking God for the precious gift of mothers during the service.


Everyone is welcome to come and join us at our Mothering Sunday services on Sunday 18th March (at 9.30am or 11.15am).
