The 'Experience' journeys are designed to be offered to schools as a gift from their local church and provide a unique opportunity for spiritual reflection by children on the sacred stories at the heart of the Christian faith. In May, we invited St Andrew's School to experience Pentecost at St Andrew's Church.


Pentecost is celebrated 50 days after Easter. Central to this festival is the person and work of the Holy Spirit. The 'Experience' journeys have proved extremely popular in a wide ranges of contexts, from tiny rural churches to major cathedrals in large cities (at St Andrew's we have also invited our parish school to Experience Harvest and Experience Easter).


With the help of a wonderful team of volunteers, six stations were set up around the church to provide an interative multi-sensory way to engage children imaginatively with the events surrounding Pentecost.
