About the Event
Please include children 2 & over when booking your places.
The Feast of Weeks - Pentecost (Greek), Shavuot (Hebrew) - was the time to present an offering to the Lord of new grain from the summer wheat harvest.
It expresses joy and thankfulness for the Lord’s blessing of the harvest.
Also called Matan Torah (giving of the Law), is believed to be the date that God gave Moses the Torah at Mount Sinai. It is this festival that Jesus' disciples were celebrating when God poured out the Holy Spirit (Acts 2).
· Special foods for this holiday are dairy foods, such as cheesecake and cheese blintzes, because the Law is compared to milk and honey.
. The book of Ruth is often read to celebrate the holiday, as Ruths coming to Israel took place around the time of Shavuot and her acceptance of the faith of Israel is compared to the acceptance of the Jewish people of God's Torah.
. Shavuot is one of the three pilgrimage feasts when all the Israelite males were required to go up to Jerusalem to “appear before the Lord” (Deut. 16:16)
This meeting will take the form of worship and proclamation of Scripture.
When you arrive, you should be wearing your face mask (as is normal currently).
Please do not congregate in the foyer but make your way to a seat.
When you arrive worship will have begun so please enter the Barn ready and focused on worship and praise to God.
Please avoid walking around and chatting to one another as this will immediately compromise the government regulations.
There will be a time of led worship which will leave space for all who feel led to approach the microphone at the front and simply proclaim a scripture before returning to your seat.
When the time of worship draws to a close all will be invited to leave the Barn quietly and in an orderly fashion
