Koinonia is a Greek word that means communion, joint participation, sharing and intimacy. The idea behind the festival was to give us an opportunity achieve these goals in a setting other than our traditional churches. Christianity is not bounded by the buildings in which we worship and we would celebrate Pentecost in the open air at Woodlands House. This started well as we made our Pentecostal flames before the service, but the weather then played a hand as it started to rain…so a decision was made to move indoors…then the rain stopped! During the service we were challenged to think about meditations from St Peter, St Barnabas and St Paul. Following this there was a convivial picnic, and then activities for all, including Messy Church.
