Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Kingdom Come is a global 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. The website: www.thykingdomcome.global offers lots of resources to help focus our prayers for these 10 days, and it explains:
During the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come, 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
After the very first Ascension Day the disciples gathered with Mary, constantly devoting themselves to prayer while they waited for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. Like them, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.
Through the centuries Christians have gathered at that time to pray for the coming of the Holy Spirit. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ picks up this tradition. We are praying that the Spirit would inspire and equip us to share the Good News of Jesus Christ with our friends and families, our communities and networks. Specifically, we again invite each and every Christian across the country to pray that God’s Spirit might work in the lives of 5 friends who have not responded with their ‘Yes’ to God’s call.

No Planet B Event
As you are probably aware the ‘Extinction Rebellion’ demonstrations have been taking place globally to raise awareness of the growing threat to all life on Earth from the effects of global warming and consequential climate change brought about primarily through CO2 emissions. The current information from climate scientists is readily available and is rightly causing great concern as the situation is far worse than many of us ever imagined.
The IPCC (Intergovernmental panel on climate change) informs us that we have only 12 years to limit the growing numbers of catastrophes caused by the ‘green house effect ‘ this means that global warming needs to be kept to a maximum of 1.5C beyond which even half a degree will significantly worsen the risks of drought, floods, extreme heat and poverty for hundreds of millions of people, not to mention the devastating effects on wildlife.
If any body would like to find out more, especially what we as individuals can do , there are a number of Churches who have come together to organise an event called ‘No Planet B ‘ The Ecumenical Planning Group have scheduled the meeting for Saturday 29th June 2019 at 10am -4pm at The Priory Rooms Meeting and Conference Centre, 40 Bull Street, Birmingham B4 6AF
