Responding to a call from the Archbishop of Canterbury and supported by the other five Presidents of Churches Together in England between 25th May and 4th June 2017, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ.
The invitation is to hold prayer events of all shapes and sizes across the ten days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks, and half night's of prayer. You may have plans for your own event(s) already in hand and these can be registered on the "Thy Kingdom Come" website, https://www.thykingdomcome.
global/events, where a whole range of resources can also be found.
There are two free events registered so far on this site - please see What's On tab for further details, and flyers on Churches Together in Surrey Facebook page:
The first on 28th May is an opportunity to gather with other local Christians at St Joseph's Catholic Church in Epsom for reflective prayer and worship at the beginning of this season of prayer and the second is a Thy Kingdom Come Beacon Event at Guildford Cathedral on Pentecost Sunday, June 4th. Both events are free but please book via the Eventbrite links given in the What's On tab. Those links will give you full details of the arrangements.
Below is a message from David Welch, Guildford Diocese Youth Advisor, who is coordinating the service at the Cathedral inviting participation.
"Plans for our Pentecost Service on June 4th are in hand, and if you or someone in your group wants to get on the big screen, now's your chance! We are looking for people who speak a native language that isn't English. I'm looking for videos of people saying the Lord's Prayer in languages other than English for Thy Kingdom Come on 4th June. I already have Danish and Mandarin. We are going to cut them together to make a multilingual Lord's Prayer for the service. If you can we'd love you to take a video and send it to me. A selfie to phone style video is fine. You can send it back to me via dropbox/memory stick/YouTube upload or tweet it @welchdav using #thykingdomcomeGFD ."
We are looking forward to seeing many of you at one or both events and do come back to me if you want further information.
All good wishes, Sue
