Resourcing Church to embrace Mothers’ Day


Mothering Sunday can be a difficult time for some people, but Melissa Naish from Home for Good Suffolk encourages Churches to embrace Mothering Sunday (22nd March 2020) as an opportunity to celebrate the diverse nature of ‘motherhood’ and highlight the need of vulnerable children.

Mother’s Day brings so many varied emotions for members of our Churches. Home for Good wants to equip churches to be great places for anyone to come to on Mother’s Day – whatever their experience of motherhood. Resources, including films, sermon outlines and prayers are now available –

Our hope is that through our Mother’s Day resources we would also raise awareness of the needs of vulnerable children, and inspire people to consider fostering and adoption and ensure churches are equipped to support families who care. We hope they will help your church mark Mother’s Day in a thoughtful, encouraging and sensitive way.

Home for Good: Suffolk is led by volunteer Melissa Naish, an adopter with experience of fostering. Along with a team of trustees, volunteers and champions, Melissa is passionate about facilitating peer support for families who are caring for vulnerable children through fostering, adoption, special guardianship and kinship care.
