Motherhood: the cliché and the reality

A service exploring and celebrating real 21st century motherhood

In this act of worship we explore and celebrate real 21st century motherhood, with a view to supporting and empowering mothers and all people in mothering roles.

Three biblical extracts are integrated to weave the sacred into the secular, enabling people to see the Gospels’ relevance in everyday life. At the start of the service, the leader introduces some images and concepts of mothers and the roles they fulfil. Three themes emerge which are then explored through interactive discussion and reflection, each with a short accompanying Bible passage. There is an opportunity for everyone to be engaged and to participate.
