On Pentecost Sunday evening, 15th May 2016 at 6:00pm at Edgware Methodist Church, members of our circuit gathered for an amazing time of worship aimed at harnessing, celebrating and enabling the talents and gifts of individuals and groups within the circuit for worship and mission.
Through the gifts of singing, painting, scrap metal sculpturing, solo dramatization choreographies and Bollywood dancing, members worshiped God with their talents. Even the less than 2-year-olds could not hold back.
An almost packed full church praised God and experienced what seemed like the biblical image of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit as recoded in Acts of the Apostles. “When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And all of them were filled with the Holy Spirit …” (Acts 2:1, 4a)
A key moment was dancing Bollywood in the spirit, rendering all distinctions void. As Charles Wesley (1707 – 1788) puts it in Singing the Faith 676 verse 5, names, sects and parties fell and only Christ was all in all. We could see new talents emerge, folks challenged; people encouraged to step forward with their gifts in boldness.
Undoubtedly, it was a T.E.A.M. BQ (Together Everyone Achieves More) moment. Many are eagerly looking forward to the event again in 2017.
