For many people, Mothering Sunday is great time to share love with those who have cared for us. This is was a difficult year for many, as isolation rules meant many families spent the day apart. Know that you are not alone, and we were praying for you.


It is also the case that, for many this day is always hard. Especially with the rise of the secular "Mother's Day" sentimentality.


Mother’s Day Runaways is for those who find Mother’s Day difficult, offering a safe space to meet with God and be reminded that you’re not alone.

Whatever your story, whether you’re grieving the loss of a mother, the loss of a child, or a baby through miscarriage, whether you’re struggling with infertility or childlessness, singleness or a difficult relationship, whether you never even knew your mother or any other reason why you might find Mother’s Day painful, this quiet, reflective space has been designed with you in mind. We will draw on Saltwater and Honey materials to offer poetry, reflection, and simple activities (including writing names on a tree of remembrance, lighting candles, colouring mindful pictures) all designed to acknowledge the bittersweet emotions surrounding Mother’s Day, offering the space to grieve, teaching us how to lament and inviting the God who loves us into our stories of struggle.
