Special Mothering Sunday service at Catshill Methodist Centre

A SPECIAL Mothering Sunday service will be held at Catshill Methodist Centre on Sunday, March 11.

The event will also be part of the building’s 50th anniversary celebration.

The church has been trying to contact everyone who has been christened or baptised in the church over the last 50 years to invite them to attend the special Mothering Sunday service to give thanks for life and for mothers – and part of that celebration will be the sharing of Simnel Cake.

Simnel Cake is a light 2 tier fruit cake with marzipan in the middle and usually decorated with 11 marzipan balls, to illustrate the disciples (excluding Judas) and often with a 12th marzipan ball in the centre to represent Jesus.

Minister, Rev Anne Smith said: “Just over 250 people have been baptised or christened in the current church building over the past 50 years and we have tried to contact as many as possible, but inevitably many have moved on and we have lost contact with them.

“We have, however managed to contact just under half of them and hope others will hear of the celebration and join us on the day or get in contact as we would love to see or hear from them again.”

To make the celebration even more special there will be a christening on the day of a newborn baby.
