Thy Kingdom Come 2021

Thy Kingdom Come is an exciting chance to pray with Christians from around the world that people you know might come to know Jesus.

It is led by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York and takes place between Ascension and Pentecost from 13 – 23 May.


Five ways you can get involved

Pray Together…

Mission Enabler James Grier is organising the Zoom prayer room

We are organising 24/7 prayer across Devon for the 11 days of Thy Kingdom Come and we would love you or your church to be part it. It is being organised by our Mission Enabler James Grier. Sign-up for a one-hour slot in our Zoom prayer room here! Here is all the info and guidance.

You could also organise a virtual prayer event in your church community or commit to saying the Lord’s Prayer at the same time each day.


Pray for five…

Each day during Thy Kingdom Come pray for five people you know that they would get to know Jesus. It’s as simple as that.


Keep a prayer journal…

Our 11 day prayer journal has beautiful illustrations New For 2021.
