Pentecost – 24th May 2015

The birth of the church at Pentecost encapsulates the vision of the Pioneer Collective, and this year we are inviting your congregation once again to be inspired by the message of Acts 2. On this page you will soon find resources to help you in this task.
When the Spirit of God came upon those early disciples they were prompted first of all to GO, leaving the place where they were gathered together and instead finding themselves in a public space. The Spirit then enabled them to DO something that Jesus had done – which was to communicate the good news in a way that could be understood. In Acts 2:41 we SEE the result – three thousand people responding to the message!
If we are concerned about the 95% of the UK population who are not in church, we need to pray for that same pioneering Pentecost Spirit to stir us up that we might also do GO, DO and SEE. Please do join us in celebrating Pioneer Sunday, and in praying for the pioneers and pioneering initiatives that are springing up and bearing fruit across our Baptist family.
