Thy Kingdom Come – 10th to 20th May 2018

In 2016, Archbishop Justin Welby began an initiative encouraging people to explore prayer and discover how through prayer they can witness to God’s work in the world. From then, Thy Kingdom Come has become a global and ecumenical prayer movement, running from Ascension to Pentecost, which this year is between the 10th and 20th May. For further information, please see the website:

So, as a church, we have decided to join in by praying the Novena and setting up prayer stations around the church. The Novena is a pattern of daily prayer for the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost, which uses art and scripture to journey from praise and thanksgiving, to penitence and intercession, to adoration and silence. And then, from today, Thursday 10th May until Sunday 20th May, nine interactive prayer stations will also be located around the church, to help and inspire our prayer and explore different themes in our relationship with God. These stations include prayers for our world, intercessions for loved ones, giving thanks to God, praising His name, offering requests, asking forgiveness, contemplating the Way of Christ, celebrating the Light of God, and praying for peace.

All are also welcome to join us for our daily times of prayer, in either the daily office or mass. We will be holding these opportunities of prayer at the following times:
