Pentecost

What is Pentecost?

Cross in bright sunlight Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church. 

Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days after Easter (the name comes from the Greek pentekoste, "fiftieth").

It is also called Whitsun, but does not always happen on the same day as the Whitsun Bank Holiday in the UK.

Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church's mission to the world.  

The Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. That is the way Christians understand God.

Celebrating Pentecost

Pentecost is a happy festival. Ministers in church often wear robes with red in the design as a symbol of the flames in which the Holy Spirit came to earth.  The arrival of the Holy Spirit meant that the disciples of Jesus were able to spread the good news of his life, death and resurrection in many langauges.

Obviously this year it will be different!  Many churches have celebrated with online services.
