Combined Pentecost Eucharist

A portion of the Pentecost crowd at St Paul's, City Beach

This morning, four Wembley Downs congregations representing four different traditions gathered together at St Paul’s Anglican Church for a combined Pentecost Eucharist. Everyone wore red, the liturgical colour representing the tongues of flame that symbolise the pouring out of the Holy Spirit upon the120 gathered in Jerusalem soon after the departure of the resurrected Jesus. The Feast of Pentecost marks the birth of the Church and serves today as a rallying point for the unity of the Church across its diverse traditions. Leaders of all four congregations played roles in celebrating the traditional Anglican Eucharist under the direction of the resident rector. This was not a new event – it was the sixth occasion for  the Anglican Churches of Christ and Uniting Church congregations and first time for the local Baptist church. Overflow facilities were needed to cater for the packed church.
