Tell us how your church is praying for #ThyKingdomCome

In the week before Pentecost this year (8th-15th May), the Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting every church in England to pray for all Christians to be blessed with new joy and confidence to share their faith.

It's not too late to sign up and get involved - let us know your church's plans.
Canon Janet Eastwood, Rector of Holy Trinity Wavertree, said: "We had already started planning prayers from Ascension Day to Pentecost before we heard of the Archbishops’ initiative. We start with a service and end with a service and lay leaders have produced a beautiful booklet of prayers for the ten days, all based on the Lord’s Prayer. Great minds obviously think alike. I am delighted that this is a lay led initiative. Clergy are following in their footsteps!"

Margaret Webb, Reader at St Francis of Assisi Southport, said: "We are reading the Gospel according to Luke daily from 12 noon starting  on Monday 8th May. We are praying and reading four chapters each day Monday to Saturday and  in addition will read the first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles on Saturday to get us ready for Pentecost."

Bill Sanderson from St Paul’s Penketh, said "We are holding a Prayer Event at 7:30 pm on Sunday 8th May in the Oaks Centre, Penketh, currently the venue for all of our worship services."
