Thy Kingdom Come events
This year, between Ascension and Pentecost, we are joining in the global wave of prayer: Thy Kingdom Come, to see more people come to know Jesus Christ. You may have already seen that during the week 25 May – 4 June we are hosting three Diocesan events at St Paul’s Cathedral, and are also warmly encouraging individual churches to take part in hosting their own prayer events during the week using resources provided online.
Messy Cathedral: Monday 29 May
During the Half Term holiday, why not bring your children to the Cathedral for this fun family event? Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality. It is a fast growing ministry that engages and builds relationship with thousands of people outside of the usual church context. Come and bring your family on Bank Holiday Monday, to enjoy and discover new ways to pray! Book your space here.
Youth Prayer Event: Tuesday 30 May
If you’re aged between 11 and 19, St Paul’s Cathedral is opening its doors on the evening of 30 May especially for you! Come and join other young people from across the diocese to pray for your city of London. If you are a vicar, youth leader or volunteer, we want to encourage you to bring your young people along. Join us for an exciting evening praying over London, for our friends, families and neighbours to come to know Jesus Christ. Book your space here.
London Beacon Event: Saturday 3 June
Similarly to last year, we are gathering together as a Diocese at the Cathedral on the eve of Pentecost to celebrate the Week of Prayer, and to continue in prayer for more and more people in London to come to know Jesus. You can register for tickets for this event at www.thykingdomcomelondon.eventbrite.co.uk, come along with your church family, friends, or come alone and join the crowd as we worship and pray together in celebration.
Please do share these events with your congregations, and if you are planning your own prayer event during the week, do let us know on Twitter @dioceseoflondon or by e: email@example.com.
