‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. It started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 and has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
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, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
…. people will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit and find new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
In All Saints Church the 9 days between Ascension & Pentecost are to be kept as a focus for prayer.
