Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that began in the Church of England in 2016. The Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join the movement, and the Congregational Federation has become a partner in the initiative. The Congregational Federation is encouraging Congregational Churches up and down the country to take part.

The aim of Thy Kingdom Come is that Christians pray that people might know Jesus Christ during a focused time between Ascension and Pentecost from 10-20 May 2018.

  • The hope is that:
  • People will commit to pray with God's world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family
  • Churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world
  • People will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ
  • The invitation is simply for people to pray in whatever way they want, with whoever they want and wherever they can, that others might know Jesus Christ.

To take part,you can sign up and 'pledge to pray' on the Thy Kingdom Website.
