    St Peter's Church, Hereford


    At the end of our Thy Kingdom Come Celebration, a wonderful ecumenical service was held, consisting of several churches from Hereford joining to celebrate pentecost together. This included a time of prayer led by church leaders in a display of unity in the body of christ.

    The event was hosted St Peter’s Church, the worship led by Hereford baptist church with a sermon delivered by Chris Cook from Freedom church.

    It is encouraging to see so many people coming together, and it will be exciting to see how this partnership will develop in the future.

    Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, inviting 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 of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

    The hope 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.
    We would still love to hear how this year's Thy Kingdom Come was for you - whether you took part as a church, family / small group or individual. Fill in the survey here: http://ow.ly/VYS450uG0eY
