Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. It was started by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016 and has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer. This year’s ten days of united prayer from Ascension to Pentecost starts on Thursday, 21st May. There are many activities to help Christians to pray, including a Daily Prayer Journal which can be downloaded, opportunities to join in with 24/7 Prayer Rooms, several videos and also an All Age Family Prayer Adventure Map.
The suggestion is that everyone thinks of 5 people they would like to come to know Jesus and to pray for them each day.
As we won’t be able to have a Good Friday Activities morning, or a service together on Easter Sunday we would like you to think about making an Easter Garden.

You could use natural materials or craft materials like tissue paper, lollipop sticks etc. When you have made it could you take a photo and send it to:
Minnows and Funky Fish are cancelled until further notice.
The Archbishops have decided that no public services are to be held until further notice. Accordingly, all services are cancelled. It has been stated that small weddings and funerals can proceed. Please contact the Rector for further information.

It is with great sadness that we have heard of the death of Gwen Miller. Gwen has not been well for the last few years but had kept all of her faculties and her faith remained steadfast. She has now moved on to meet her Saviour face to face. Our thoughts are with her family at this sad time.
