Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost 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 has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Last year over 200 churches and schools across the diocese took part, praying in churches, pubs, country parks and schools. It is hoped that many churches will take part again this year, joining Christians around the world in prayer from May 10th to May 20th.

The aim of TKC is that:

  • People will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family – as a church, individually or as a family;
  • Churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
  • People will be empowered through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

Individuals, families and churches are being encouraged to sign up to Pledge2Pray on the TKC website – The information supplied will then be used to plot prayer events on a map of the world. There is also a range of prayer resources on the site.
