What is Pentecost?

Pentecost is the festival when Christians celebrate the gift of the Holy Spirit. It is celebrated on the Sunday 50 days after Easter (the name comes from the Greek pentekoste, “fiftieth”).

Pentecost is regarded as the birthday of the Christian church, and the start of the church’s mission to the world. It also culminates in the end of Eastertide.
