Waiting for Pentecost

In May, Messy Church looked at the time between Jesus ascending into heaven and the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Jesus’ friends had to wait in Jerusalem for the gift God promised to send. We made traffic light biscuits to remind us that after waiting, we have to be ready, before we can go. We made figures for a ‘doll’s house’ to show what we thought Jesus’ friends were doing while they waited. The Holy Spirit came in a great wind represented by the wind whizzers which some people were very good at using, then the disciples went out with the message found in the crystal hunt: ‘Jesus said, “Tell everyone about me.”
