What a way to celebrate Pentecost with over 25 people making a public declaration of their faith in the living Lord Jesus! On the first Pentecost Sunday after the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, Peter stood and preached; those who accepted his message were baptised, and about ‘three thousand were added to their number that day.’ The Holy Spirit continues to be at work drawing people to a knowledge of Jesus Christ and working through us in the world. In the baptism service we are reminded of our status as children of God, and of our new family of brothers and sisters across the world. Whether we were baptised years ago or recently, we all need the support of our Christian family around us. Our Networks are the places where we are able to get to know our church family better, share life and follow our calling to love Leeds.
This month, our Network and Small Group leaders have looked back and celebrated the number of people who are now connected at St George’s. We’ve been building community at weekends away, reaching out to love Leeds, inviting people to events, seeing shared life in action, honouring one another and supporting one another.
“They broke bread together in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favour of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.” (Acts 2:46)
Let’s continue to pray; “Come Holy Spirit.”
