Pentecost Party In The Park - The Gathering of Many People

Over 600 children and adults gathered for a party at Cannon Hall Farm to celebrate the birthday of the Church (Pentecost) on June 4th. Organised by Christians from Methodist churches in the local area this Party in the Park was a fun and enjoyable afternoon for all the family. We had live music from the St Andrew's Clangers (hand-chime group from Penistone), the Penistone Children's Choir and the Barugh Green School Choir. We were also pleased to have the Rockingham Brass Band showcasing their talents.

The party enabled everyone to explore stories in the bible interactively and we joined together at the end of the afternoon with a short service of celebration, led by the Emmanuel Methodist Church worship band.

Elizabeth commented: "Really enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the friendly welcome from the people I met; the Christian magician was fun!"

Rev'ds Philip Bee (Denby Dale Circuit) and Cameron Stirk led the celebration including prayers for those affected by the Manchester and London terrorist attacks. The afternoon culminated with the cutting of our giant birthday cake and followed by a superb BBQ prepared by Cannon Hall Farm.
