On Pentecost Sunday, when we celebrate the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, we will have a celebration service with Holy Communion in the church building at 10.30am. Due to Covid restrictions, places at this service must be pre-booked by texting: 07960 626938. There are usually plenty of spaces available though, so please don’t hesitate to book! For those not able to join us in church, there will also be a pre-recorded online Pentecost service on our YouTube channel from 9am. Alternative online service ideas can be found below, as can a selection of family-friendly downloadable children’s resources on the theme of Pentecost.
A Prayer for Pentecost
Come Holy Spirit, come among us and all your people
Come Holy Spirit, come as the wind to move us
Come Holy Spirit, come as the fire to prove us
Come Holy Spirit and renew us
Come Holy Spirit and heal us
Come Holy Spirit and comfort us
Come Holy Spirit and guide us
Come Holy Spirit and empower us
Come Holy Spirit, come among us and all your people, Amen.
