At 6pm on Sunday 31st May, the Diocese of Coventry hosted a virtual Pentecost Praise service called 2020 Spirit Vision.
The service premiered on the diocesan YouTube channel and Coventry Cathedral's Facebook page and featured many different people from churches across the diocese.
The Dean of Coventry, John Witcombe introduced the service, with Laura Seago, churchwarden at St Mark's Fleknoe, and the Revd Alison Evans, Vicar of Holy Trinity, Attleborough, presenting.
There was worship led by Coventry Cathedral Chorus, St Mark's Coventry and a special rendition of Bethel Worship's 'Spirit Move' by churches from across the diocese.
Bishop Christopher and Bishop John both spoke and prayers were led by the Offchurch Group.
2020 Spirit Vision was the diocese's first virtual celebration of Pentecost and so far the service has attracted over 1000 views.
Commenting on the impact the service had on him, Bishop Christopher said:
"I had really felt the loss of the Church not being able to gather together today to celebrate our birth in the pouring out of the Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. But the service lifted me high in joy and deep gratitude for all that God is doing among us, and for the wonderful people the Lord is using for his purposes."
Archdeacon Missioner, Barry Dugmore also said
"[My wife] Suzanne and I felt our hearts warmed with the fresh touch of the Holy Spirit and encouraged with the reality that the Spirit of God is a missionary Spirit whose love and presence cannot be contained."
