Thy Kingdom Come
10th – 20th May 2018
During the 10 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who participates will deepen their friendship with Jesus, bring others to know Jesus or know him better, and come to know that every aspect of their life is the stuff 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.
People around the world are invited by Archbishop Justin Welby to join the global wave of prayer and you can pledge to pray and see your light join those from Christians across the globe.
If you would like to join in, whether as a church, as an individual or as a group there are plenty of great ideas and resources to help:
FREE materials (listed below) relating to Thy Kingdom Come are available from Church House; Archdeacon’s House in Bodmin; through Churches Together (we’d like to share them as widely as possible with our ecumenical friends); at the Diocesan and Methodist Synods; at the Beacon Event itself; and finally (if there are any left!) at the Pentecost service at Gwennap Pit.
Morning and Evening Prayer – an easy to use booklet to encourage individuals who don’t normally join in Morning and Evening Prayer, beautifully presented. With an encouragement at the end to keep going… Size: A5
The Prayer Journal – with stunning images and designs, this journal encourages people to sketch and scribble thoughts, prayers and any answers as they go through the eleven days, with a different theme for each day. It has been designed with youth and young people in mind, but would work for all ages. Interactive and creative, this will make it easy for people to get involved. Size: A6
The Novena – Each page has a beautiful piece of artwork, devotional guidance, a Bible passage and prayer. The little Novena booklets are to encourage prayer, reflection and even group study. Size: A6.
Following the effectiveness of the ‘Beacon’ event at the Cathedral last year, there will again be a large-scale event to which all are welcome. This is at Truro Methodist Church on the afternoon and evening of Sunday 13th May 2018 entitled “Together for God’s Kingdom”
