Thy Kingdom Come
A Season of Prayer: Ascension to Pentecost
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus. Since its start in May 2016, God has grown Thy Kingdom Come from a dream of possibility into a movement. Christians from 172 countries have taken part in praying ‘Come Holy Spirit’, so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.
At Great St Mary's we're taking part in Thy Kingdom Come in many ways, including
Special services on Ascension and Pentecost, including a sermon from the Archbishop of Canterubry, the Most Rev'd Justin Welby.
Midday Prayer daily, centred around the Lord's Prayer.

Our small groups and bible study groups taking part in the #plege2pray, praying for friends and family.
