Thy Kingdom Come
Started in May 2016, 'Thy Kingdom Come' is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus.
May 21st — May 31st
The theme this year is 'Light up the world', so we are inviting you to put a candle in your windows each evening from Thursday 21st May until Sunday 31st May and while it is lit, spend 30 minutes in prayer, as suggested below, if possible between 7.00 and 7.30pm, but please feel free to pray for longer or at another time if that is not possible!!
On Tuesday 26th May, we will hold a Circuit Prayer Meeting on Zoom at 7pm.
Here are the joining details:
