On Sunday 4th June FUSION joined with the rest of the St. John’s family to take part in our annual Whit Walk.
This is a local tradition where churches walk around their community to witness to those they see. ‘Whitsun’ is also called Pentecost, which comes 6 weeks after Easter and celebrates the birth of the Christian Church, when the Holy Spirit came to Jesus’ disciples.
Before we left church, Tim spoke to us about the importance of not just following the traditions of the church but to live it out every day.
At 10:30 we all gathered outside church with our brass band (thanks to New Mills Brass Band!) ready to leave together. For 2017 we had brand new banners which tell everyone who St. John’s church is and what we do.
Some members of FUSION came along to walk together and carry our banner. We enjoyed spending time together, walking and singing (as well as the snacks!), even if we did get caught in the rain!
When we returned to church everyone joined together for refreshments in the church centre; including the famous Raspberry Buns!
We hope to see even more people joining us next year 🙂
