Mackay and Whitsunday Life


Mackay Churches Together Pentecost Service

At 4pm on Sunday 28 May, in celebration of the Day of Pentecost, Christians from different denominations will walk, pray and sing together.

The spirited walk will follow the footpaths from St Paul’s Uniting Church, Macalister Street, to Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Gordon Street, to the Salvation Army, Gregory Street, and back again to St Paul’s Uniting Church.

Inspired by the Acts of the Apostles, chapter 2, the account of the coming of the Holy Spirit on people of all nations, prayers will encourage Christian unity amid world-wide fear, conflict, and deprivation, work for peace, justice and care of God’s creation, and people of all ages to demonstrate God’s love in Mackay.

Walkers may park at or near St Paul’s, drop off a plate of supper in the St Paul’s Church Hall, walk over to Holy Trinity Anglican where the prayers will start and go around three city churches accompanied by members of the Mackay and District Pipe Band.

People not able to walk may sit in St Paul’s Uniting Church, rest, pray, listen to Mavis Braithwaite play the pipe organ, and wait for others to return for final prayers, song and supper. Please wear comfortable shoes, red, orange and yellow colours for Pentecost, and bring supper, water bottle, hat and sunscreen.
