Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. During a focused time between Ascension and Pentecost (25th May – 4th June 2017), he is calling on Christians to pray that people might come to know Jesus Christ .
During that time, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours might come to know Jesus Christ and prayer events of all shapes and sizes will be taking place.
An event is planned at Blackburn Cathedral on Wednesday 24th May at 7.30pm with Roy Crowne from Hope, to enable us to pray together before returning to our towns and villages to pray during the period from Acensi9on to Pentecost. More details can be found in the Events section of the website here. If you are planning to come along, please use the link here to register for the number of places you expect to need.
