The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have called on all Christians to spend the ten days between Ascension Day and Pentecost praying to grow in confidence as witnesses to Christ (25th May to 4th June). Hundreds of thousands of people across the Church of England have already committed to be involved. If you haven’t yet signed up to pray over those ten days, you can do so at: www.thykingdomcome.global (you’ll also then receive a short video from Archbishop Justin and others each day of the ten days). In some of the parishes of The Society and chaplaincies associated with The Society in the Southern part of the Wakefield Episcopal Area our plans for ‘Thy Kingdom come’ are to hold a '40 hour devotion.' See below for details (or download here.) There’s also more information and a wide range of resources available for all ages on the website.
Archbishop Justin has said, ‘I cannot remember anything in my life that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit’.
In the past every move of God to grow His Church has begun in prayer. Let us play our part.
