'Thy Kingdom Come' at Norwich Cathedral

01 June 2017
The Cathedral has been taking part in the observation of 'Thy Kingdom Come'; a global prayer movement focused during the time between Ascension and Pentecost. We will mark the end of this period of time at Norwich Cathedral by taking part in the Global Day of Prayer on Pentecost Sunday.

On Ascension Day, the Cathedral began observing Thy Kingdom Come, when Anglicans join all other Christian denominations in a special time of prayer between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday, with a special Eucharist followed by fireworks and a party on the Upper Green (see picture above)

The Archbishop of Canterbury is calling on Christians during this time to pray that people might know Jesus Christ. 

The hope is that:

- people will commit to pray with God's world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family;
- churches will hold prayer events, such as 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, across the UK and in other parts of the world;
- people will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding new confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.

“In praying ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities.” - Archbishop Justin Welby.

We will culminate our observation of this prayer movement on Pentecost Sunday (4 June), by taking part in the Global Day of Prayer.
