Mother's Day - Because of you

This page contains resources on the theme of Because of you and enable us to share about the women who have cared for us and helped us - in big and small ways - to be the people we are today. They give an opportunity for us to thank God for those women and also to consider the challenge we have of being and doing that for others, using Romans 12:10-13:

Be devoted to one another in love. Honour one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.

There are two videos available for you to download and show in your church this Mother's Day along with a service plan, prayers, sermon notes and children's and youth sessions.

Because of you film

This film (3min) helps to set the theme for Mother’s Day, using young people’s stories of women who have had a significant impact on their lives. We have changed the stories slightly and used different children in this video to protect the identity of the young people.

Amie's story and call to the Church

This film (5min) could be used in your church in place of a talk, or in a small group, unpacking Romans 12 and the challenge it brings to us.


This is a liturgical prayer that you can either print or read from the PowerPoint.

All age service:

This all-age service gives opportunity for every member of the family to contribute at their appropriate level, with some of the sections having more than one option to choose from. Mother’s Day is an opportunity to invite people to church who don’t often come, but it is also a time when some people stay away because they worry about the theme of the day. This service gives opportunity for everyone to be blessed and to be challenged.
