On Pentecost, Sunday 15th May, congregations of Churches Together in Chapel Allerton and Meanwood met in St Matthew’s Parish Church to celebrate the coming of God’s Spirit and the birth of the Church. The presentation of a cake from each church was made – forming one large cake – together we are the Church. There was a presentation by Kingdom Performance Ministries illustrating Jesus as the True Vine.
Abiding in the vine, we are the branches bearing good fruit – fruits of the Spirit. We then all received fresh fruit reminding us of our calling before being sent out to share in the world.
We concluded with a Proclamation, and a picnic during which much cake was devoured and games were played!
