prayer is essential to grow our relationship with God

Just as talking and listening are vital to growing our human relationships – prayer is essential to grow our relationship with God. We’re all unique, so how we pray will be too. On this page we aim to let you know more about the various prayer opportunities within the parish. We want to encourage you as you seek to pray more and grow in your relationship with our amazing God.

Thy Kingdom Come

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. this year it takes place between the 13th and 23rd May.

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.
