What's it all about?

During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, it is hoped that everyone who takes part will
  • Deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ
  • Pray for God's spirit to work in the lives of those they know
  • Come to realise that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer

After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total - on our own we can do nothing. So through the centuries Christians have gathered at this time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. Thy Kingdom Come continues this tradition. We are praying that the Spirit would inspire and equip us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends and families, our communities and networks.

It is our prayer that those who have not yet heard the Good News of Jesus Christ and his love for the world will hear it for themselves, and respond and follow Him. Specifically, we again invite each and every Christian across the country to pray that God's Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their 'Yes' to God's call.

Whether you have joined in Thy Kingdom Come before or not, we invite you to take part this year - along with people from over 65 different denominations in 114 countries around the world.
