Thy Kingdom Come

What is Thy Kingdom Come?

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

Why is it important?

This year’s Thy Kingdom Come takes place in a very different world from any we could have expected, yet the need for prayer in this time of crisis has never been greater. We have an incredible opportunity to show the love and peace of Jesus Christ, not just in our own lives but in our communities, too.

That is why Thy Kingdom Come 2020 is focusing on both prayer and care: encouraging people to pray for others to come to know Jesus’ love in their own lives, and also to demonstrate that love in action.

How can the Diocese help?

The Mission Department has designed free resources to help you to mark this event while observing Government guidelines on social distancing:

Special resources aimed at children and young people include:

Building a community online

Social media is a great resource for helping us to feel connected. We are encouraging everyone in the Diocese to share images, ideas and prayers on Facebook or Twitter @SouthwarkCofE using the hashtags #TKC and #PrayerAndCare.

We also encourage you to share your stories with us via e-mail, by sending them to communications@southwark.anglican.org
