Thy Kingdom Come – national prayer initiative between Ascension Day (May 5th) and Pentecost (May 15th)

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy-Kingdom-Come_FinalThe Archbishops of Canterbury and York have invited Christians across the country to pray for the evangelisation of the nation in the nine days leading up to Pentecost Sunday (15th May).This time of prayer will culminate in six ‘Beacon Events’ around the country over Pentecost weekend, where people will pray for the renewal of the Church by the Holy Spirit and greater confidence to share the Gospel.

One of the national Beacon Events will take place at Winchester Cathedral on May 15th – tickets are free, but you need to book – see below.

How can I get involved?

In the nine days leading up to Pentecost there will be opportunities to participate in this prayer initiative across the Avon Valley Partnership, the Deanery of Christchurch, and Diocese of Winchester.

You might like to make a prayer pilgrimage to a Church you don’t know; or join in one of the creative prayer times, locally or further afield; or use the Nine Days of Prayer 2016 Booklet at home or in Church – details of all of these, and much more, below.
