Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

  •  Deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Pray for God’s spirit to work in the lives of those they know
  • Come to realise that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer

In the context of Diocesan Year of Prayer, between Ascension and Pentecost, we will be running a series of daily reflections with people from different Christian traditions speaking about prayer and how it impacts on their own life and relationship with God.
