THY KINGDOM COME 30 MAY – 9 JUNE

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York, Archbishop Justin and Archbishop John, have issued a call to prayer during the days between Ascension Day and Pentecost. These have traditionally been a time of prayer for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Before he ascended into heaven, Jesus called his disciples to wait in Jerusalem for the Holy Spirit to come upon them, who would equip them for all that he wanted them to do. This is what we read about in Acts chapter 2, and we celebrate at Pentecost, which this year is on 9 June.

The Archbishops would like us all to be especially vigilant in our prayers during this time, praying particularly that the Holy Spirit would be at work in our lives, in our churches, in our communities and in our world. This has been growing over the last few years. A particular call is to pray for our friends, family members, neighbours and others to come to know Christ for themselves, and for our faith to grow.

There are lots of resources available to help us pray, and I have some free booklets available which will be in our churches in time for the start of the season, on Ascension Day, 30 May. There’s a booklet called Novena – Nine days of Prayer, which has a picture for each day, and a short reflection and prayer. There is also a Prayer Journal with a page for each day and ideas for prayers each day.

There are also booklets especially for families with children. Furthermore we have the following events taking place during which we shall be including prayer as part of Thy Kingdom Come:

· Ascension Day Service of Holy Communion on Thursday 30 May at 9.30 am in the Creech meeting room.

· Services on Sunday 2 June in all our churches

· A prayer walk around Ruishton on Tuesday 4 June at 7.30 pm (more details to be announced nearer the time).

· Quiet Day at Ruishton on Wednesday 5 June (see separate notice about this).

· Services in our churches on Sunday 9 June, Pentecost.

Please pick up a booklet from one of our churches and use them at home during this time. This is taking place all over the world!  We long to see more people come to know Christ, and for God’s kingdom to come.
