Thy Kingdom Come

Under the title of “Thy Kingdom Come,” the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is inviting Christians around the world to pray as one for people to know Jesus Christ. The prayer events, which will differ widely from church to church will take place between Ascension (25 May) and Pentecost (4 June.)
This event first took place last year, but this year is being extended both internationally and to other denominations. St Pauls intends to take a full part with a programme of prayer related activities.
25 May: Prayer stations at St Peter’s Church 12.00midday - 5.00pm
27 May: Prayer on the Parade at Tippets florist 10.00am - 12.00midday
29 May: Indoor Prayer Labyrinth at St Paul’s 4.00pm – 8.00pm
4 June: Family Messy Prayer Event at St Peter's 4.00pm - 5.30pm
4 June ‘Praying together for Oadby’ at St Paul’s 6.30pm

During this time of prayer St Paul's will be opened every day between 4-5pm for people to come along and pray. Resources are available to help you to pray.
On Monday a prayer labyrinth will be laid out in church.
On Sunday 4th June at 6.30pm we will be hosting 'Praying together for Oadby', a chance for us all to come together to pray for our town.
Do join in with this global wave of prayer, particularly praying that many would come to know Jesus.
