Celebrate mums and all those who care for others

To help you and your church, group or school celebrate Mothering Sunday, on 26 March, we have produced a comprehensive set of resources for you to use. 

Mothering Sunday, on the fourth Sunday in Lent, is a day for celebration for our mothers, their care and concern for us, and for the love that they give us. It can also be a day to celebrate all those who care for others, and for consideration of those for whom this may be a painful time.

Many people, including volunteers and staff at The Children’s Society, care for children who have nowhere left to turn: some of the most vulnerable children in our communities. We are celebrating all those who care for this country’s children and young people.

You can help us in this care of children and young people who so desperately need our help by holding a collection in support of our work, praying with us, or writing messages of hope and gratitude for child refugees.

Our Mothering Sunday e-card

Why not brighten a special someone’s day by sending them one of our free Mothering Sunday e-cards - it's the perfect way to celebrate all those who care for children and young people.


Mothering Sunday resources and more

These free resources include worship materials such as ideas for prayers, sermon notes, hymn suggestions, Sunday school material, including a Key Stage 2 resource to engage children with the issues faced by unaccompanied child refugees.

If you do plan to hold a collection, you can order collection envelopes from us for free

You can also request a volunteer speaker from The Children’s Society to attend your Mothering Sunday service (or another of your choice), a group meeting or school assembly. After your Mothering Sunday service you can pay in the money collected using our online payment form.
