fullsizeoutput 3bc5You are warmly invited to 'Catching the Fire' on Sunday 9 June, at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, followed by a picnic. 

This Pentecost worship for all, led by Bishops Martin and Mike, will be the culmination of the 10-day wave of prayer 'Thy Kingdom Come'. Before arriving at the cathedral Bishops Martin and Mike will be visiting some of the places in the county where creative prayer and mission is taking place. 
Worship will be sung by the Cathedral choir as well as a choir and musicians drawn from across the diocese. As a sign of the light of Christ with which we are called to shine in our world, we will distribute and light candles which will continue to be used in churches, fresh expressions and small groups in prayer in the months ahead.  The service will include the Bishop’s commissioning of leaders in Lightwave, our new county-wide Fresh Expressions Community. Please come to your Cathedral and hold this exciting new initiative in your prayers.

4.00pm – Worship in the Cathedral
5.00pm – Picnic outside the Cathedral

Bring your own picnic, or contact by 3 June to book a picnic with Pilgrim’s Kitchen.
