Between 25th May and 4th June, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ.
Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks and half nights of prayer. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.
We hope that churches, families and individuals will take part.
“I welcome the ecumenical initiative Thy Kingdom Come which is being supported this year by Cardinal Vincent Nichols as well as the Archbishop of Canterbury. At the recent meeting of Anglican and Catholic Bishops in Birmingham, there was strong support for Thy Kingdom Come as a way of bringing prayer and especially the Lord’s Prayer into the heart of our communities and a desire that the Our Father should once again be familiar beyond our parishes and schools.
I invite you to support local initiatives during the ten days leading up to the great feast of Pentecost, putting prayer at the centre of all that we are and all that we do.”
Archbishop Bernard Longley
