A Time of Prayer on the feast day of St Augustine

Image result for thy kingdom come

We are joining in with the global prayer movement, Thy Kingdom Come, by having a time of prayer on the feast day of our patron, St Augustine of Canterbury, which is 26th May.  The church will be open between 6.30pm and 8.30pm (or later if people wish to stay).  There will be various prayer stations around the church to encourage prayer including our Labyrinth.  The stations will be available until the day of Pentecost and will be available when the church is open.

About Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England 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, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
  • people will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
