Holy Spirit Holes

Pentecost Sunday is the 23rd of May. 
Pentecost Sunday is a great opportunity to get creative, to be joyful and to learn a little church history!  In preparing for an intergenerational service for Pentecost Sunday, I  made a rather inspiring discovery, Holy Spirit Holes! In the ceilings of some cathedrals are these holes, trapdoors actually. During the celebration of Pentecost, live doves and red rose petals were dropped through these holes to swoop and fall on the congregation below. 

Imagine the drama of it all! 

So, I created a service to explore this idea. There are no live doves involved so don't worry about terrifying your church or the clean up job required for all that bird poo.
