Nine days of prayer

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is 10 days of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost.

Archbishop Justin Welby says,
 “We show our faith and trust in God in prayer. 
It is in prayer that God takes hold of our lives and works through us in ways we can barely imagine possible. 
Our praying is particularly transformative when it is done in the company of others. 
Jesus prayed at the Last Supper that we, those who follow him, might ‘be one that the world might believe.’ 
There is an invitation then, to make a lasting difference in our nation and in our world, by responding to his call to find a deep unity of purpose in prayer.”

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

As part of this week of prayer a number of prayer stations have been set up around the church: the pebble pool, handprints, prayer tree, the world, the prayer wall, clay bowl.
