In 2016 Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby launched a programme called Thy Kingdom Come. It was intended to encourage people to spend the 11 days between Ascension day and the day of Pentecost in prayer.The movement grew from there and each year people around the world engage in this season of prayer. It is also an interdenominational event and churches from Methodist through to Pentecostal join in this programme of prayer.
It is hoped that everyone who takes part will
- Deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ
- Pray for God’s spirit to work in the lives of those they know
- Come to realise that every aspect of their life is the stuff of prayer
We would encourage you to pray for five people who you know to experience God’s Spirit working in them.
This year we are running a Thy Kingdom Come programme. What we are doing is that each evening except Sunday we are holding half hour prayer meetings in the church at 17h30. We will light candles for each of the people we want to pray for as a symbol of the light of Christ in their lives.
On Saturday 8th June we want to hold a “prayer walk” through the village, praying for the residents, the business owners and government officials that live and work here. We would like as many people to join us in this walk as possible as we commit the village to the Lord.We shall start at the top of Kantoor Street at 14h30 and work our way down to the Police Station.
