Engagement with Thy Kingdom Come in 2018:
As we live God’s love, we know how important it is that our lives and the lives of our churches are rooted in prayer. We recognise that to share God’s love, we need strength, unity and inspiration. We invite all our churches to join the global wave of prayer that is ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
Thy Kingdom Come Beacon Celebration Event – Saturday 19th May 2018, 6.30pm at St Albans Cathedral.
Christians of all denominations met to celebrate and pray together on the evening of 19th May. We were delighted that Archbishop Justin Welby joined us. This inter-generational and inter-denominational celebration was one of many Thy Kingdom Come events taking place around the country and a collaboration between Soul Survivor Watford, local and national youth organisations, the Diocese of St Albans and our ecumenical partners, and the Cathedral. Prayer stations and activities were run from 4pm. The Celebration was the culmination of Thy Kingdom Come’s ten days of prayer.

Reflections on last year’s ‘Thy Kingdom Come’
We were thrilled by the number of our churches who participated in Thy Kingdom Come 2017; read below some encouraging feedback & reflections on last year:
“I spent much time praying for people specifically when in our prayer room. I used the idea of writing their names on stones and after praying for each one I placed them in a small bag – which represented to me they were safe in God’s care ..”
“We have had 6 adults coming to faith – 4 of them were baptised in the summer and 6 confirmed in January.
“A 24 hour Vigil of Prayer was held when people slept overnight in church and services were held throughout the day and night.
“Perhaps the greatest benefits have been seeing the renewed dedication and awareness of the power of prayer and, in particular, feeling the importance of being part of a world-wide community of Christians praying together for God’s Kingdom.”
