Short and Sweet service 31st of March

On Sunday 31st March the Rev Ginny Lucket and Ros will be celebrating Mothering Sunday at 11.00 a.m. at Whitchurch Canoniocorum Church.

We will be sharing pur special thoughts and memories of our Mums, making posies of flowers and also making paper flowers designed by Clare Colby. (Remember the fabulous angels we made at Christma).  So another fun service for everyone.

As we usually do please bring a photo or something special which reminds you of your Mum.  But this year we especially ask if you could bring a donation for Cupboard Love (the Bridport Food Bank charity) which will help Mums and Dads who are finding it difficult to fed their families.

If anyone is able to give me flowers suitable for posies please let me (Ros) know (01297 489055)
