Our Pentecost Service celebrated the birth of the church in a three part parade service.
For the first part, aimed more at children, we were joined by some Brownies and a child from the Stay and Play group. They enjoyed the childrens talk led by Mary Bielby and Joanne Dolman. The children and adults had fun playing with bubbles, seeing a candle being lit and lighting the everlasting candles on the birthday cake, to remind us that the Holy Spirit never goes out, whilst we sang Happy Birthday.
In the second part we enjoyed fellowship (and tea, coffee, squash and cake!).
The third part, led by David Rowley and many of the congregation, was aimed more at adults. Which was more in depth with prayers and reflections on Pentecost.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the morning and our new 1-2-3 part service.
