Thy Kingdom Come – a week of prayer from 10th-20th May

Join the global wave of prayer! 
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.  What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.  The week runs from ascension to pentecost – you can pray as a church, pray as a family and pray as an individual.
At St George’s the church will be open during this period with prayer stations along the themes of our Lent Course – The Light, The Bread, The Life, The Gate, amongst others.   Further details will be available …
