Today was Pentecost and we made crowns of flames to go with the story.
We had lots of them and they weren’t all the same, but only Lucy stayed long enough to model one for the website – we believe there may have been cake waiting somewhere…
In our All Together Sunday service today we heard about UNITY. The prayer chain in the picture was made by putting many strips together into one piece, and the loops had names on them of all the people in the church.
But the funniest bit was when Teresa tried to get the duvet into its cover by herself. It was to show how you cannot do everything on your own – not even being a Christian.

Today we are starting our Behind the Organ page all over again, because it’s EASTER, and Easter is when all things are made new :)!
We had our Easter Workshop today. We did lots of different activities.
We made an Easter Garden with real flowers
And then we had loads of craft
And also Bible story telling about Easter in between
And a pretty good party at the end!
The story of Pentecost is very exciting: it’s full of FIRE and sounds like rushing WIND.
You can read it (or ask an adult to read it with you) in the Bible, Acts 2. 1-8
Before Jesus had gone back to heaven again, he had promised that he would send a helper to his disciples, to help them tell everybody about Jesus.
This is what is described in that story in Acts: the Holy Spirit had come.
The Holy Spirit was the promised helper.
The disciples did not speak foreign languages but after the Holy Spirit had come they suddenly found all the people could understand them when they started telling the story of Jesus, even the foreigners in the town.
That was so amazing that everybody who heard them began to listen carefully.
And they heard how Jesus had come into the world,
and how he had been crucified and raised up by God from the dead,
and how all people everywhere were now invited to become his disciples.
After hearing all that, on that day alone about three thousand people were baptised!
