Mothering Sunday 2013

Images of an action-packed service on March 10th, 2013.

Fr Simon paraded the Brownies at the front of church -
and prepared the way for a guest appearance by his dog
 Poppy, who almost disappeared beneath the children trying to pet her.
Poppy emerged to feature in a tableau when she would only 'sit'
when addressed in simple and direct language:
a suitable metaphor for conveying the word of God to his waiting people!

After the flags were paraded out at the end of the service,
there was time for a reflective candle at the votive stand by the Lady Chapel
and for children of all ages to collect a small bouquet of flowers for their mothers.

Some days earlier, the vicar is seen finding a different sort of refreshment

at a men's meal at the Saffron restaurant in Waterloo
