As we prepare to celebrate the church’s birthday on Pentecost Sunday why not download and colour in this window hanger? Please send me photos of any you do (by Saturday 5pm) and we’ll have a gallery for our Pentecost service – you can download it from HERE
Thanks to Howard Barker for sharing the idea!
Celebrate Pentecost with the Bible Society
After the Ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ, the disciples went into a strange time of waiting. All their old routines had broken down; they knew they had a message to share, but they weren’t sure what it was, and they didn’t know what was going to happen next.
This Sunday the Church in the West celebrates Pentecost. In Acts 2.2 we read: ‘Suddenly there was a noise from the sky which sounded like a strong wind blowing, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting …’ (GNB)
And the rest is history.
These are strange times too: believers can’t meet in person, we’ve had to find new ways to worship and minister, and we too aren’t sure what’s going to happen next. But we’re still Pentecost people, hopeful for the future.
We have some Bible Society resources to help you unpack that Pentecost hope. Here’s an article about the link between Acts 2 and Genesis 11 – Pentecost: When Babel went into reverse.
Our Refocus book The Holy Spirit comes in a digital edition so you can download and read it straight away – it’s a study guide that explores the significance of Pentecost.
And the brilliant Dai Woolridge tells the story of the early Church in just three-and-a-half minutes!
