This section aims to provide resources for the diocese…for everyone


THY KINGDOM COME (25th May – 4th June 2017)V is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
The hope is that:
• people will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family – as a church, individually or
as a family;
• churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks
• people will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to
be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

The Bishop hopes that we as a Diocese may embrace this call to prayer. The Parish Growth Group will be working on some ideas for use in this Diocese, please look out for more details as they emerge.
