Thy Kingdom Come – Photos from a wonderful week at St George’s

Article posted on 21 May 2018 Leave a Comment

Last week was a busy week in the life of St George’s.  The church was filled with interactive prayer stations to celebrate the international week of prayer ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.  We had (amongst other things) a labyrinth, a sheepfold, a vine and a bread buffet complete with giant pretzel! 

The church was full of people too, it was open all day, every day, with visitors from other churches in the area coming to see what was going on, plus groups from Falkland School and parents and grandparents stopping by after school and preschool.  Lots of people came to visit who would not normally cross the threshold.

Each day at 2.30 the north transept was transformed into a cafe, and we had loads of takers for tea, coffee, biscuits, cakes and the endless supply of pretzels!   And at 4pm each day, prayers were said from the Novena booklets.  There was a great sense of community, of people welcoming the opportunity to come into church and take part in what was going on, and a sense that this is just the start of something bigger.

Pentecost Sunday saw the culmination of 10 days of prayer with bubbly in the church and a bubble machine on the piazza.  It was a great party to follow a great week.

Archbishop Justin Welby said of Thy Kingdom Come ‘I cannot remember in my life anything before where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit.’   

Amen to that!
