‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a global movement of prayer that started in 2016 with an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. They invited people to spend the days between Ascension Day and Pentecost praying for more people to come to know Jesus. After the very first Ascension Day, Jesus’ disciples gathered with Mary to pray as they waited for the promised Holy Spirit. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.

Over the last few years, 65 Christian denominations in 114 countries have taken up this invitation to pray. Whether you have done so before or not, why not consider this invitation to pray this year between Thursday 30th May and Sunday 9th June? Choose 5 people (or how ever many you choose) and ask God to be with them and to be at work in their lives. The prayer of the worldwide Church during this time is that people’s faith in Jesus will be deepened and prayer will be part of all of our lives.
