Expectant anticipation on Ascension Day

It may have been an early start, but nothing could stop those who gathered to celebrate Ascension on Thursday.
As the church begins 9 days of prayer between now and Pentecost,
there was a real sense of expectant anticipation,
represented in the 11 chairs scattered
facing the Priest’s  door in West Wittering Church.

‘Now the 11 disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them’

We Prayed, symbolised in incense, and Praised, expressed in song, before being Blessed by the Rector and sent to
‘make disciples of all nations’
