Today (Ascension Day) marks the start of Thy Kingdom Come, a global ecumenical prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost (18th-28th May) for more people to come to know Jesus.
Since it began in May 2016, God has grown TKC from a dream of possibility into a movement which unites more than a million Christians in prayer, in nearly 90% of countries worldwide, across 85 different denominations and traditions – so that friends and family, neighbours and colleagues might come to faith in Jesus Christ.Thy Kingdom Come Website
Every person, household and church are encouraged to pray during the 11 days in their own way. Here at the Water Eaton Church Centre, our two congregations (Spurgeon’s and St Frideswide’s) have several opportunities to do this. Click on the links below to find out more:
- St Frideswide’s Ascension Day Evening Service, Thurs 18th May, 7.30pm.
- Joint Prayer Drop-in, Sun 21st May, 2.30-4pm – will include prayer stations for all ages, a creative space with worship music and a quiet space for silent prayer and reflection.
- Pentecost Evening Worship, ‘Living out of the overflow of the Holy Spirit‘, Sun 28th May, 7pm – a time of extended worship and prayer ministry.
As part of Thy Kingdom Come, we are also invited to Pray for 5. Think of 5 people that don’t yet have faith in Jesus, write down their names and promise to pray for them every day during Thy Kingdom Come, from Ascension to Pentecost, that they might encounter Jesus for themselves.
Churches Together Milton Keynes (CTMK) are also publicising other prayer events taking place in Milton Keynes during Thy Kingdom Come, which can be found on the poster below. How good it is to have the opportunity to pray with Christians across our city!
Former Youth Minister to Lead Upcoming Service
We are delighted to be welcoming back Rev Ricky Rew (our former Youth Minister, pictured right) to lead our Morning Worship this coming Sunday (21st). Ricky is now the Minister of Rayleigh Baptist Church in Rayleigh, Essex.
Rather excitingly, we will also be celebrating the believer’s baptisms of two new members, and joining with their family and friends for a bring and share fellowship lunch afterwards. This will take place in the Assembly Room, due to the Youth Hall being used for the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ Prayer Drop-in after the lunch.
