On Sunday 24th May we celebrate Pentecost – a major festival when we remember the coming of the Holy Spirt to the disciples in Jerusalem.
“And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2
To help us celebrate Pentecost Sunday we are delighted to welcome Bishop Peter this morning to preach and preside. Bishop Peter has made such a positive impact on our Diocese since he arrived and we look forward to God’s message that he will bring to us. Do stay for coffee after the service and speak to Bishop Peter.
We are delighted to see the return of our beautiful Pentecost banner. The unusual word on it is written in Koine (Common or Biblical) Greek and is pnuma (pnuma) which means spirit or wind (pneumonia and pneumatic are English words which come from this root).
