THY KINGDOM COME
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost (Thursday 30th May to Sunday 9th June 2019) for more people to come to know Jesus Christ. What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.
