Pentecost- The power of God!
On May 20th. we celebrate ‘Pentecost' - the outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the early Church (you can read all about it in Acts of the Apostles chapter 2). Jesus promised that at his request, God our Father would pour upon Christ's followers the same Holy Spirit which had raised Jesus from the dead. This Holy Spirit is the power of God to become a Christian and to live for Christ. He is given to us at Baptism and at other times in our Christian lives. For with God, we can do greater things than we could do ourselves, living for him and sharing the good news of Jesus by word and deed.
Sometimes the Holy Spirit gives Christians extraordinary gifts which enable people to be healed, or to prophecy, or to speak in tongues (spiritual languages). Above all, the Holy Spirit enables us to be fruitful and to become more Christian, to show love, joy, peace, and other characteristics which are detailed in the Bible.
The original event at Pentecost was very dramatic- with wind and fire signifying the power of the Holy Spirit. We are delighted that on Pentecost day this year, Esther is to be baptised- a sign of the power of God to change real lives!
St. Margaret's is the local parish church of Iver Heath in the south of Buckinghamshire.

Nine people participated in our pilgrim course on the Bible before Easter, and we are currently running a Sunday evening course for those preparing for Baptism or exploring the Christian faith.

People attending St Margaret's cannot help noticing a new quality sound system installed just before Easter in the Church. The sound quality is now superb and state of the art! Thanks to the work of Project Manager Chris Daubney, the system was installed over three days, providing us with an excellent new system.
In addition, the altar rail has been repaired, and we hope to repair and update the paths accessing the Church in the near future.
Jam Tots is meeting Friday mornings and the mums, carers and children are having lots of fun. We recently took delivery of a trolley to hold children's coats and other outdoor wear while they play together. They also enjoy lovely treats and nice coffee provided by Marjorie. Please tell any young mums that you know about
Jam Tots .
Please pray for the Jam Tots team
Marjorie, Dee, Mary/and Father Andrew.
Jam Club Xtra has expanded to take in more activities. In the second half children who want to play games stay in the Scout Hut and other children go to the Village Hall where we use a room to do craft-work or drama. This has expanded the range of what we do, and also the number of children who can participate.
