Mothers Day song (interactive) … for Messy Church this Sunday

Mother's DayHi!

Here’s a new Mothers Day song … for a Messy Church time our church is having this weekend. I’ve gone boldly and scarily (for you, that is) and croaked out a vocal. It’s right back in the mix.  The singing is purely there to give something of the feel!

I reckon it will work well when we use it, and be lots of fun!  That’s certainly my hope. The plan is prior to singing, we’ll get some words (two syllables each) that describe what we can give thanks for in mothers and all in mothering roles.   We’ll write them down in large letters on a flip-chart, then sing the song through a few times, substituting words from the chart each time.

Meanwhile, there’s also opportunity for:

  • whistling OR “do-do-doing” in the instrumental bits each time
  • using this bit right through the song, as a group from congregation (maybe the mums themselves!) sing it over an over like an ostinato
  • plenty of finger-clicking or clapping
  • lots of fun, thanksgiving and affirmation.

See what you think, and enjoy!!!

    Love this simple, catch song for Mothers’ Day and I’d like to be able to download the backing track. How do I do this?
