Easter Sunday

 

 

Whit Walks  (Pentecostal procession of witness)

 

 

Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit.  It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days after Easter.  Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church's mission to the world.  The Holy Spirit is the third part of the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit that is the way Christians understand God.

 

 

     

 

 

 Thanks to stewards, banner holders and our choir. A big thanks too to Arnfield Brass Band who led us around Dukinfield again this year.

 

Back to Church Sunday

This service was held on Sunday 24 October.  It's a nationwide event which makes it feel special knowing that all the churches are worshipping together. 

 

This was followed by a Bring and Share lunch.

 

All Souls Day

 

All Souls Day is a surprisingly old feast.  It arose out of the Christian tradition of celebrating the martyrdom of saints on the anniversary of their martyrdom.  When martyrdoms increased during the persecutions of the late Roman Empire, local dioceses instituted a common feast day of 1 November in order to ensure that all martyrs, known and unknown, were properly honoured.  We invite relatives of all those for whom we have conducted funerals in the past three years; we are glad to have been able to offer consolation to those in grief and remember their loved ones before God.
