Service Review: June 4th 2017

The Communion Service was led by the Revd Keith Jump. The readings were Joel 2 v 20-32; Psalm 100 and Acts 2 v 1-13. It was a fun and lively service where we celebrated the birth of the Church at Pentecost.

Keith got us to sing Happy Birthday as a church to the Church which seemed a bit strange prior to doing it but actually was fun and relevant.

Keith talked about the meaning of the word Pentecost i.e. 50 days after Easter and the fact that this Sunday used to also be called Whitsunday because people would wear white clothing to go to church in - hence the abbreviated word 'Whit'.

I found the sermon really interesting. Especially when he passed the comment that there are some people in the Church who consider the Holy Spirit a fire risk!! Though it was a bit 'tongue in cheek', it highlighted the contradiction within us i.e. we want revival and the Holy Spirit's power but at the same time there is a 'price' to be paid and it's often messy and uncomfortable!

As Keith put it, "There's no Pentecost without plenty cost!" Keith's challenge was that we need to be open to the Holy Spirit who brings 'fire' that ignites, burns away rubbish to make us clean and empowers us the reach out to our neighbours.

It was a great service and I look forward to hearing Keith speak again.

Service Review: 19th Nov 2017

The theme of the service was ‘What if John came to the Triangle today’, and after the welcome by our own minister, Hillary Howarth, and she opened the service with hymn number 264 in Sing the Faith ‘Make way, make way’ and it was sung with gusto and enthusiasm.

We then welcomed our first guest John the Baptist! Not THE John the Baptist but our own Glen dressed as John the Baptist preparing the way for the Ministry of Our Lord, Jesus the Son of God. Glen played a fantastic part and the throwing of the balls was enjoyed by all.
