Mothering Sunday Service
Families from St John's School were delighted to join the congregation of St John's for a special Mothering Sunday service on 6th March, led by Reverend Tony.
A group of Year 6 children, Beth, Jessica E, Nicholas and Libby, joined ex-pupils to play a ukulele accompaniment to, 'He's got the whole world in his hands,' accompanied by a large team of children from across the school on percussion instruments.
All the children joined forces with the Junior Church Choir to sing a Mothering Sunday anthem, 'Thank you for the love'. (The highpoint for mums in the congregation was undoubtedly the line, "Show us how to love, so that we don't infuriate!"). The service had been planned to incorporate hymns that were familiar to the children of St John's, and included a setting of the Lord's Prayer that they've recently learnt in school as part of their work with Reverend Tony.
The icing on the cake, was, quite literally, the beautifully decorated and delicious cakes that were served at the end of the service. What a lovely ending to an uplifting service!
Many thanks to all those who attended and to Mrs Insley for organizing the participation of the St John's children.
