Thy Kingdom Come
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; the Methodist Church of Britain has become a partner in the initiative. The World Methodist Council is also encouraging Methodists across the world to take part.
During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring others to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.
The Circuit engaged in this exciting initiative from Ascension Day to Pentecost. 10th May-20th May.
This was a ten day prayer initiative and most Churches in the Circuit took part in some way. These may have been a whole Church activity or people praying at home or in small groups. It was a chance for each Church to have the opportunity to be creative in their approach to prayer.
Resources had been put together for each Church and there are still further exciting resources on the ...TKC Website
We encouraged each and every one of you to be involved in some way and. if possible, to invite other Churches to take part jointly in prayer. There is record of all the events that were organised around the Circuit — were YOU there?
