From Ascension to Pentecost churches across the nation have been asked to participate in a wave of prayer. On the evening of Ascension a group of parishioners met in the garden of St Peter's House for an informal gathering to listen to the Scriptures and pray.
Beautiful instrumental music preceded each passage of the Bible and the outdoor liturgy concluded with us burning our "worry" prayers on a small bonfire. After this community very kindly put on supper for all who attended. We all left with a balloon with a luggage label with someone's name written on it. We are to pray for this person during the week.
