Trinity Sunday is observed on the first Sunday after Pentecost. 
Our confession of the Holy Trinity is not about asking a mathematical question about how 3 can be one and one can be 3. Because it is a divine mystery.

What difference does it make that the first Christians were baptized with the Holy Spirit, 2000 years ago, on the Jewish festival called Shavuot (Hebrew) or Pentecost (Greek)? It is that all who believe in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour receive “the indwelling and power of the Spirit”.

The Ascension of Jesus Christ must be essential, crucial, to all Christians. The future of God‘s work and the Church is at stake - for only by the power of Christ that rose from the dead, and rose to heaven, do we have a future, do we have a vision of divine victory, can we have hope and can we have faith.

On Ascension Day we proclaim that Jesus is our Lord. That he died for our sins and has been raised from the dead and has risen to heaven.
He is alive forever, and he was enthroned at the right hand of God the Father and has been given all authority in heaven and on earth on the first Ascension Day, 2000 years ago.

Never forget that the risen Lord promised to be with us always. He is with us in all circumstances and amongst all challenges.
Risen and almighty, he promised to never leave, or forsake us.

Resurrection Sunday, as the crown of all Christian worship, inspires every Sunday worship service of the year. The Resurrection power of Jesus Christ is displayed when we worship our King and we are equipped to live for the glory of God every day of our lives, until the end and at the end!

During Holy Week we observe the Palm Sunday celebration, Tenebrae Service on Maundy Thursday and our Good Friday services.
And then the high light is the festive celebration of the resurrection of Jesus on Resurrection (Easter) Sunday.
