The congregation at St Mary Magdalen, Tilehurst celebrated Pentecost – the birth of the worldwide Church – on Sunday, June 8, with a special service.

Using music, words, anointing, the act of laying on of hands and an act of Holy Communion, the service also included a special symbolic act with people holding candles.

They were lit from the church’s Easter Candle – linking the birth of the Church with the events of the first Easter – and waving ‘flames’ made by the group in the Children’s Corner.
