Thy Kingdom Come


A Global Call to Prayer

“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 prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray during the 10 days between Ascension and Pentecost. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England, has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer. We focus on praying for people to come to know Jesus Christ. The wave of prayer culminates with events on Pentecost Sunday around the world.

Parishes in our diocese join in this wave of prayer, with churchgoers praying as individuals, in small groups and as whole congregations. There are also chances for worshippers to pray with those of other denominations at local ecumenical events.
