Pentecost is THIS Sunday!

This Sunday is the Feast of Pentecost, a celebration of the gift of the holy Spirit and the birth of the

church.                                                                            

For this week’s service you will need:

A candle

Something to light it with*

Something red to wear or wave

Although we will be unable to light a sea of candles and send them out of the church, we want to make the service as celebratory of the life and energy of the Holy Spirit as possible.

*On the day of Pentecost, we light our candles in church from the Easter Candle symbolizing the spread of the light of Christ that we are called to carry out into the world by us.   I will have a votive candle lit from the Easter Candle on the vicarage porch all Saturday and I shall leave one in the church porch also.  If you would like to take this Easter light to light your own candle – pop by and spread the flame. Alternatively, light your own at home.

p.s take care, flames can set fire to stuff ….
