As well as being the Feast of Pentecost today is, of course, the Queen's Platinum Jubilee. Today's sermon explores some of the links between these two celebrations. 


Today is the Feast of Pentecost, when we think about the first followers of Jesus receiving the Holy Spirit, God's presence with them, giving them power and confidence to go out into the world and tell people about God's love. 

  • One of the traditional symbols of the Holy Spirit is wind - you could blow some bubbles and watch them float away as prayers. Or you could find some fluffy dandelion heads and blow the seeds off them, and pray as you do so. 
  • We are also celebrating the Queen's Platinum Jubilee this afternoon, with a Big Lunch on Seal Recreation Ground. Come along and join in the fun if you can. If you can't, why not have your own party at home. You could make a crown and wear it! God calls each of us to love and care for others. What might God want you to do?
Jubilee celebrations in Seal

FIRST COMMUNION PREPARATION.  If you are interested in your child preparing to receive Holy Communion, there will be sessions after church (at around 11.15 am) on June 12,19 and 26.  We hope to admit them to communion at the Patronal Festival on July 3

WOULD YOU LIKE TO DISCUSS FAITH WITH OTHERS? Why not join one of our home groups? They meet on Tuesday evenings (contact Babs Bartholomew or Wivine Turner) or Thursday mornings (Contact Kelly Durrant or Marion Gilchrist).

Monday afternoons between 2pm and 3.30 in Deniz's on the High Street. Buy a cup of tea or coffee and join us on the Talking Village table, for a chat and to make new friends, or catch up with old ones!
Saturdays - On the first Saturday of each month in Seal Library from 10.15-11.15am. Join us for a coffee whilst out browsing for your library books.
At both these venues, there will always be two hosts to welcome you, and we look forward to meeting with you and getting to know each other better.

Deniz's coffee shop still has some copies of our Seal Historical Guided Walk books for just £5 a copy. All proceeds go to the Seal Village Fund. A perfect time to walk around our beautiful village and see it through new eyes!
