Thy Kingdom Come - 9 Days of Prayer from Ascension to Pentecost 2018


This year, we as a parish, and a parish of the diocese of Southwark, are striving to be one with Christians of all denominations throughout the world in prayer during the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost.


We will do this by having our church open for an hour for some of those nine days – for prayer, reflection or adoration or on certain days for a service.


We will focus in prayer on:


  1. That the Holy Spirit may set our hearts on fire with confidence and joy in sharing and living the Gospel of the ascended and glorified Christ.
  2. That the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative may become a springboard into action; and as we pray “Thy will be done” we may allow God to use us as the answer to prayer.
  3. That the Diocesan Vision may become a living reality: -

          Walking with Jesus,

          Welcoming all,

          Growing as a church.
