If you'd passed by St Thomas' just after 10am on Sunday 16th May you would have seen a collection of people outside flying paper aeroplanes as part of the STomp service.

What, you may ask, does that have to do with church? Well, we decided to celebrate both Ascension Day and Pentecost together. So after retelling the story, we decided to act the Pentecost event using paper aeroplanes to act as the Holy Spirit, swooping down in the wind and sunshine. Some flew much further than others; some stalled on entry; some circled round and returned to sender.

But all were there to help us think about what it must have been like that day so many years ago, and celebrate.
