Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global ecumenical prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

“In praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities.”

Archbishop Justin Welby

In the 10 days between Ascension Day (9th May) and Pentecost (19th May), Christians across the globe are invited to pray that God’s spirit might work in the lives of people they know.

Prayer Events

In our diocese, prayer events will be taking place in different churches. St Simon and St Jude church in Rainworth has prayer stations set up, and St Stephen’s Sneinton have a range of prayer events over the 10 days including Night Prayer, a prayer room and a prayer walk. If your church is running an event, you can list it on the Thy Kingdom Come website here.

Since 2017, Nottingham City Prayer have coordinated a large city-wide prayer and worship gathering as part of Thy Kingdom Come, with over 1000 people attending each year from churches across the city and beyond. This year’s event is taking place at Trent Vineyard on Thursday 16th May. You can find out more and reserve your free seat here.
