‘Thy Kingdom Come’
The third Thy Kingdom Come season of prayer took place between Ascension Day (Thursday 10 May) and Pentecost (Sunday 20 May ). During the novena, communities and churches around Staffordshire – as well as the nation and the world – gathered to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know God through his Son Jesus Christ. Prayer events of all shapes and sizes took place across the 11 days, including a special evensong at Lichfield Cathedral on Ascension Day, a series of four ‘beating the bounds’ meetings at the corners of the county, and the visit of Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to Burton-upon-Trent.
