Thursday 13th May was Ascension Day – the day when Jesus went back to Heaven, telling his disciples to wait for the helper he would send.  Finally, ten days later the Holy Spirit came at Pentecost, which this year is Sunday 23rd May.

There are two stories this week because next Sunday, 23rd May, there will be a live-streamed Pentecost All Age service.  Book your seats to attend the service or watch it via the church website.


Story 1:  Jesus’ Ascension

Story 2: God sends the Holy Spirit (Day of Pentecost)

Song:  Sweet Song of Salvation – Go Fish
