Every year between Ascension Day and Pentecost our Archbishop of Canterbury asks Christians to pray. This time is called Thy Kingdom Come.
Through prayer and discernment Thy Kingdom Come goes into its 8th year bringing new life and in response to the current context we live in. The need across the world for the transforming power and mercy of God is more stark than ever. How can we partner with God, in prayer and mission, to see more people encounter the love of Christ this year?
Mission always comes from the place of prayer, so how can we in this time go the extra mile, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to love and serve those we are praying for or others who are in need? This is about living the Kingdom - individually and corporately - in our context.
At St John’s we will be gathering for a short service of worship when we can all join together or prayer for specific issues. The services will be at 5.00pm on:
· Tuesday 23rd – Pastoral Care
· Wednesday 24th Children and Young People
· Thursday 25th – Modern Slavery
· Friday 26th – Eco Church
The services are open to everyone and especially those from neighbouring parishes who wish to take part in this year's Thy Kingdom Come.
