Diocese of York

The Pocklington Group of Churches are hosting a Prayer Station in the Lady Chapel at All Saints Church Pocklington for the 10 days of prayer from Ascension Day to Pentecost.

For the Pentecost Celebration on Sunday 4th guests from the German Lutheran Church have been invited to share in worship and guest preacher, Revd Dr Horst Hoffman will speak at the 10.45am service in All Saints.

On the first Day of Pentecost the disciples were heard to speak in different languages... and so it will be in this multicultural and multilingual service where we will be praying and worshipping with our brothers and sisters from Germany. In this exchange, we can learn from each other, about how to minister in our different cultures and enjoy a wider fellowship.

Before coming to Pocklington, Rev Geoff Hollingsworth was part of the team for 20 years arranging annual exchanges between congregations in the Diocese of Sheffield and the Church District of Hattingen Witten in Germany.

All are welcome but if anyone is German speaking they are encouraged to come along to share.
