Your Kingdom Come!

The archbishops of Canterbury and York have taken the unprecedented step of writing to every Minister of Anglican Church, issuing a call this week – the week leading up to Pentecost (the Sunday when we remember how the Holy Spirit fell on the Christians in Jerusalem, soon after Christ’s resurrection, and a large numbers of people became Christians).

They have invited all the churches to join together in a week of prayer, that the good news of Christ may be shared throughout the nation. The hope is that:

    All Christians may deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ
    All Christians may have confidence to share the good news of Jesus.
    Many may respond to the call of Jesus Christ to follow him as disciples, to live out
    the gospel and to seek God’s kingdom from day to day.

 At St Paul’s we have organised daily acts of prayer, which started last Sunday evening with an hour of prayer. Different events are planned each day of the week finishing at 10 a.m. on Saturday with a time of prayer on the streets, starting on The Parade.

 Do come and join us.
