TThy Kingdom Come

Mindful that church leaders have much on their plates at the moment, the Thy Kingdom Come team have tried to make it as easy as possible for as many people to get involved as possible, building on the amazing work of mission and ministry in which you are all engaged.  Below are some ways you can be involved:

 

  1. DOWNLOAD the free Thy Kingdom Come app – packed full with videos, reflections, a daily podcast from N.T. Wright and the daily prayer journal (a great start to any day) from the Apple or Android app stores, simply search for “Thy Kingdom Come Prayer” (most resources available in a range of languages);

  2. RESOURCES FOR WORSHIP - easily downloadable music, prayers and short Thy Kingdom Come reflections from Archbishop Sentamu and Archbishop Justin for Pentecost.  These are available  to download now here: We are also leading on the special Thy Kingdom Come morning service with the Archbishop of Canterbury at 9am on Pentecost Sunday cofe.io/ChurchOnline. Including prayers from the His Holiness Pope Francis, music led by Matt Redman and contributions from many others.

  3. JOIN – We are writing to invite you to a webinar joining a time of intercessory prayer led by Archbishop Justin Welby, Archbishop Sentamu and Cardinal Vincent Nichols on Thursday 21st May 10:30-11:00.  They will be praying for a fresh outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our world today: that many might come to know the love, peace and joy that is found in Christ. If you would like to join – please register here TKC Intercessory Prayer.

This will be followed by a live Q&A from 11-11:30am with a Facebook live led by Archbishop Justin designed for those on the edges of faith where prayer is something new to them. The Archbishop will share his personal experiences of prayer and also take questions: click here

When the Spirit of God came upon those waiting, watching and praying that first Pentecost, the followers of Jesus were not in the temple and they were not on the streets. They were in a home.  Church buildings may have been shut but the Church has maybe never been as open, with vibrant, faith fuelled prayer in households up and down our nation and Christians mobilised to do the works of Jesus Christ as we serve and support those in our communities most in need: prayer and care hand in hand.”
