Thy Kingdom Come 2019
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray 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.
Pentecost Sunday (9 June) marks the end of ten days of prayer across the UK and beyond led by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. The Thy Kingdom Come prayer movement invites Christians throughout the world to pledge to pray for more people to come to faith from Easter Day to Pentecost.
Parishes are invited to take up this challenge with a wide range of ecumenical prayer initiatives, which will culminate in diocesan events being held in Dudley and Worcester.
Please do let us know what events you might be planning!
Diocesan events on Sunday 9 June
Praying for Dudley
Amid the ruins of Dudley Priory, Christians from all denominations will be gathering to pray for the Borough of Dudley. If the weather allows, the afternoon will start with a picnic before the event and from 2.30pm there will be a dedicated time of worship and prayer. A number of faith leaders will share their own testimonies and there will be an opportunity to pray for different groups of people who live and work in the Borough.
