The Gift of the Holy Spirit to lead us into the future…
Please join us as we worship together in our Online Sunday Service. This Sunday is Pentecost as we celebrate the birth of the church and the outpouring of God’s Holy Spirit upon us, so you might like to have a candle to hand as part of our worship this week. But even more importantly, can you enter our worship with an openness to the Holy Spirit’s work in your life? Click here to join our worship.
Happy Birthday to us! Let’s celebrate…
This Sunday the Church celebrates it’s Birthday – Pentecost is 50 days after the resurrection on Easter Day. It’s when God poured The Holy Spirit out upon all believers and when Peter preached “3,000 were added to their number that day.” Even in “lockdown” The Holy Spirit has been at work in our community drawing people back to faith. To celebrate The Church’s Birthday we’re inviting you to wear something red when you join us for refreshments after the service at 11am. (And if you like you could have something appropriately celebratory to raise a glass to the Church.)
We look forward to catching up with you.
God bless you, with love and prayers – Richard
