Jesus taught us to pray 'Thy Kingdom Come' - to pray that God's light and life would break through in our day and age. Justin Welby has set up 'Thy Kingdom Come' as a global prayer movement, praying from today, Ascension Day (25th May) to Pentecost Sunday (4th June).
He says, "I cannot remember in my life anything that I’ve been involved in where I have sensed so clearly the work of the Spirit."
Wow! Let's join in with what the Spirit is doing!
Watch this short video where he explains what Thy Kingdom Come is all about.
And then join us, and other local churches as we pray for Shirley, Southampton and our world - that more and more people may come to experience for themselves the love, forgiveness, freedom and life that Jesus offers.
We will have short prayer evenings on Tuesday 30th May, Wednesday 31st May and Thursday 1st June, from 7.00 - 7.30pm. Drop in as you are able.
Lots of other churches around the city are joining in - if you can't make our prayer times, why not join with one of these other times?
Let's #Pledge2Pray #toJesus !
