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”).
For the season of Pentecost, we’ve changed the hanging banner and pulpit fall in the chapel.
The following prayer appears in the Methodist Worship Book in the service for the day of Pentecost:
Gracious God, whose Spirit helps us in our weakness and guides us in our prayers, we pray for the Church and for the world in the name of Jesus Christ. Renew the life and faith of the Church; strengthen our witness and make us one in Christ. Grant that we and all who confess that Christ is Lord may be faithful in your service and filled with the Spirit, that the world may be turned to you.
