Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global Prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray, from Ascension to Pentecost, 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.

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will:

Church leaders from across the County are encouraging local congregations to join in.  The full letter from Churches Together in Lancashire can be found  here.

We, who together lead the various churches in this County, ask you now to promote “Thy Kingdom Come” this year, 26th May - 5th June, within your local meetings and congregations. At its heart, the idea is for every single member of our churches to identify five people – may be from amongst their circle of friends, neighbours, colleagues, family, or lapsed members – for whom they want to pray. They do this in preparation for the ten days, and then undertake each day, may be several times each day, to pray intentionally for those people by name.
