Thy Kingdom Come 2018


Our parishes will join in the global wave of prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost 2018. Thy Kingdom Come is an initiative of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to unite Christians around the world to pray throughout those 10 days. They are urging us to pray for others to know the love of Jesus. Full details and resources are on the Thy Kingdom Come website.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has recorded an introductory video, which you can see below. To help you think about what your parish might do in 2018, check out the stories at the bottom of the page, highlighting the creative way that our parishes found to pray during Thy Kingdom Come 2017.

Let us know how your parish is planning to pray during Thy Kingdom Come (using the form at the bottom of the page) and we'll add those details onto this page.
