London gets taste of Pentecost

An estimated 10,000 people took part in the Pentecost Festival in central London last weekend. Live music, dance, comedy, theatre, political and scientific debates and art shows featured at locations including Leicester Square and the Victoria Embankment. Director Andy Frost said the festival made ‘a significant impression’ on the city. It succeeded in showing ‘the vibrancy, diversity, life and relevance of the Church’, he believed. ‘Many people who have no Christian faith were inspired, challenged and received prayer.’
