Prayer Resources – 2017 Year of Prayer


The Anglican Parish of Christ Church Essendon and Fr John has declared 2017 the Year of Prayer.

As part of the 2017 Year of Prayer, we are getting involved in the global prayer movement “Thy Kingdom Come”

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost (25th May to 4th June) 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.


Below is the Anglican Parish of Essendon “Thy Kingdom Come” program for 2017
