Thy Kingdom Come: 10 - 20 May


‘I cannot remember in my life anything that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit.’ (Archbishop Justin Welby)

Thy Kingdom Come is a global wave of prayer from 10 May (Ascension Day) – 20 May (Day of Pentecost). It’s now in its third year and has spread to many denominations across the world! This year it also co-incides with Christian Aid Week!

Over this period we are offering various opportunities to pray in church either in silence or with other people. You are really welcome to come along. We also have Thy Kingdom Come Prayer Journals available in church and would love to give you one for your own personal prayers.
