Pentecost 15 May 2016

This coming Sunday we will celebrate the Feast of the Holy Spirit, otherwise known as Pentecost (i.e. 50 days after Easter).

People are invited to wear something red, as a sign of the Holy Spirit, and to bring cake for sharing afterwards.

We welcome The Revd Prof June Boyce Tillman as our preacher.

Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday

Three days of prayer, reflecting, watching, waiting. 

Starting on Maundy Thursday at 8pm with footwashing and ending on Holy Saturday at 8pm with a service of vigil and lighting the new fire. Lots of symbolism and meaning.

You are very welcome to join us!
