Acts 2:1-21
Pentecost Sunday Message

On Pentecost Sunday, join the Valley Clergy team as we read the story of Pentecost and briefly reflect on the story of Pentecost during this time of pandemic.

Our worship opens with a slide show of "What does the Church mean to you?" with illustrations contributed from across the Parish. Bishop Michael has a "show and tell" with his bishop's mitre before the clergy team reads the Pentecost story and Rev Gillian offers a short reflection. We close with the hymn "Holy Spirit, Come with Power" (Common Praise #643) played by Sharon Cybulski and Anne Burns at Church of the Ascension, Killaloe.
