Pentecost Sunday – 5th June
Happy Birthday Church!
Pentecost Sunday is a special date in the church calendar and is understood to be the birthday of the church. After the death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and His ascension to heaven, He promised a special gift to the disciples – the Holy Spirit to empower them. This day in the history of the Church happened at a significant time – at one of the Jewish festivals called the Feast of Weeks, also known as Shavuot.
Come and join us on Pentecost Sunday at 10.30am, for a special gathering of music, song, prayer and a word of encouragement from Pastor Andrew to receive the gifts that God continues to offer to us today. We remember and celebrate the day when Jesus kept His promise – bringing people together from various nations and cultures.
