Thy Kingdom Come

Last updated Saturday, 23 May, 2020

During the ten days between Ascension Day (May 21st) and Pentecost (May 31st), we will participate, with other churches in Christchurch Deanery, in 'Thy Kingdom Come', a world-wide prayer initiative.


The organisers say:

"... however important prayer is, we know the pray-er is called to action. So, this year we will be encouraging all not simply to pray that friends and family, colleagues and neighbours might encounter the love of God in Christ, but that they would experience that love in action. We are calling this ‘Prayer and Care’. Of course in churches up and down the country doing this is a daily reality, and this time of prayer gives itself to an even deeper engagement with the needs around us. There are a whole load of ways we are suggesting this could happen; by care, by contact, by service – but serving as Christ serves."
