Thy Kingdom Come 10th to 20th May
From Ascension Day to Pentecost 2018 our Archbishops are once again calling us to share in a powerful international wave of prayer for the renewal of our nation for Christ. 
We will be united with Christians of all traditions and denominations, as we trust in the power of prayer to convert, renew and usher in the Kingdom of God. 
There will be prayer resources available in our churches, but we are also especially invited to a Launch Event in Blackburn Cathedral on Wednesday 9th May at 7 30pm, led by Bishop Philip. Look out for details of travel arrangements and how to share transport on the weekly newsletter.
