Our theme for 2021: “How are you praying?” Person praying

This year the ecumenical Thy Kingdom Come Planning Group for Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire has worked with lay and clergy contributors from across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire to inspire people to pray together, ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.  This year we are asking you to share with us the answer to the question “How are you praying?” and local people will be sharing the riches of how they pray and serve others in a number of different ways:

  • Daily Prayers from Regional Church Leader

Short daily prayers and thoughts from regional church leaders from across the traditions.

  • Daily Reflections from people across Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire

Short prayers and reflections prepared by local people and families from across the traditions.

  • Come Together Online To Pray Thy Kingdom Come – an Online Service of PrayerLaptop

On 19th May at 7.30pm all are welcome to join in prayer online.

In an event facilitated by Rev. Dr David Chapman, Chair of the Methodist District there will be a short service of prayer led by Bishop Paul McAleenan of the Catholic Diocese of Westminster with the support by the Venerable Dave Middlebrook, Archdeacon of Bedford and Dr Lynn Bassett.

Following the short service there will be a time of open prayer.  Please do join us! Book online to get details of how to join in.

The ‘Thy Kingdom Come ecumenical planning group is grateful for the support of all our ecumenical partners in coming together in planning, preparation and prayer.
