Happy Pentecost! The day when we celebrate the coming of the Holy Spirit on the disciples and their courage to tell others about Jesus. AKA the church’s birthday. Below are the resources for this week, the Sunday morning services, three sermons and a play for your enjoyment, but first the notices:

I have updated the Children’s Page with a great little video from the Bible Society – Pentecost and the Early Church in 3.5 minutes.
On 10th June we are having a special service, members of our community including our MP and Mayor will be choosing their favourite hymns and will be saying why they love the hymns.
Then from 14th June we will be including in the services a “Favourite Hymn” slot for anyone who would like to take part – if you have a favourite hymn then please video yourself explaining why it is meaningful to you and send it to Lesley or Alan.
