Thy Kingdom Come in Yarmouth and Gorleston
Churches in Great Yarmouth and Gorleston will be taking part in the “Thy Kingdom Come” global prayer movement at the end of May and beginning of June.
Great Yarmouth Minster, pictured above, is holding an Ascension Day service at 7.30pm on Thursday May 30 to mark the beginning of the 11 days of the initiative. Archdeacon of Norfolk, the Venerable Steven Betts, will be preaching. This is one of three services held that day through the Diocese. The others are at Norwich Cathedral and Kings Lynn Minster.
The Minster is at 12 Priory Gardens, Great Yarmouth, NR30 1NH.
There will also be a United Prayer Meeting at St Andrews Church in Gorleston at 7.30pm on Monday June 3. Everyone will be made welcome, even if they are new to prayer meetings!
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
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, and come to realise that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer.
The website https://www.thykingdomcome.global/ says: “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 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 or not you have joined in ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ before, we invite you to take part this year – along with churches from over 65 different denominations in 114 countries around the world.”
