ThyKingdomCome  the global wave of prayer 2018 will be from Thursday 10th May to Sunday 20th May.

As a church we  will again participate in the Archbishop of Canterbury's call to prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost.

His invitation is for each of us to Pledge to Pray for five people, that we know, during the period between Ascension Day and Pentecost especially, to come into a personal relationship with Jesus.

We signed up, #Pledge2Pray by visiting this website: Pledge2Pray

We joined in with thousands of people throughout the world who all Pledged to Pray.

Some excellent material on Sharing your Faith has again been produced. The introduction says:

As we pray 'Thy Kingdom Come' we should expect that God will use us to help answer our prayer.  He will give us opportunities to witness to Him with the people we have been praying for.  He will use us to invite people to know and experience the goodness of His Kingdom and to join His family.  But we also know that most of us find speaking of our faith daunting.  We feel ill equipped.  We assume someone else, maybe anyone else, is better suited, or we think that sharing faith is someone else’s job.  All Christians are appointed as God’s witnesses.  It is not a choice.  The only choice is whether we are good witnesses or bad ones.
