Sunday 24th May is Pentecost, when the Church celebrates and thanks God for the gift of the Holy Spirit. Our main Pentecost Sung Eucharist (with Children’s Church) is at 9.30am – earlier than usual, so do come and join us bright and early as we celebrate the sending of the Holy Spirit on the followers of Jesus.
The new mayor of Ripon, Cllr Pauline McHardy will be installed in a service here at 11.15am.
In the evening, we will celebrate the first year of the Diocese of West Yorkshire and the Dales by celebrating the work of the Holy Spirit in the parishes of the Ripon Episcopal Area. This special celebration service starts at 5.30pm and is preceded by refreshments.
The service will be led by Bishop Nick Baines and during the service, he will commission Bishop James Bell as Area Bishop of Ripon.
