2019 Thy Kingdom Come Pledge2Pray – 30th May to 9th June

ASCENSION DAY TO PENTECOST SUNDAY

Between 30th May and the 9th June, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ.

Prayer events of all shapes and sizes will take place across the 10 days, including 24-7 prayer rooms, prayer days, prayer walks and half nights of prayer. Cathedrals, churches and other venues will host Beacon Events, gathering people across towns and cities to worship and to pray for the empowering of the Holy Spirit for effective witness.

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.

Our Church will be open for personal prayer and reflection 10am – 4pm on Thursday 30th May – Sunday 2nd.  Thursday 6th June – Sunday 9th June

Also on Sunday 2nd June we have a Narnia Themed Messy Church at 4pm until 5pm followed by Contemporary Worship at 7pm.

It is the National Volunteers Week 1st – 7th June and we are inviting all St Cuthberts volunteers to a celebratory service on Thursday 6th at 12:30pm.  Please let us know if you would like to come by signing the sheet at the back of church or via eventbrite 

We are looking for volunteers to welcome people and offer refreshments during Open Church.  If you can commit to doing a couple of hours on one or more days please sign up on the sheet at the back of church or speak to one of the Vision Champions.

If you can’t get to church please pray anyway.  Pray for five people you know to experience the love of God in their lives and to encounter Jesus, not just during the 10 days of Thy Kingdom Come but keep them in your prayers.

It would be fantastic to see new disciples, and older Christians. coming to join us for worship on a regular basis.

You can find out more about the global wave of prayer through the website https://www.thykingdomcome.global/ and we look forward to another exciting challenge.
