Liturgical Resources for Thy Kingdom Come

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting churches to pray for the evangelisation of the nation during the week before the Day of Pentecost 2016.

ThykingdomThe Archbishops have written to every serving parish priest in the Church of England expressing their longing "to see a great wave of prayer across our land, throughout the Church of England and many other Churches" from 8th-15th May.

The week of prayer will culminate in 'Beacon events' around the country over Pentecost weekend, where people will pray for the renewal of the Holy Spirit and the confidence to share their faith. Further information is available from the Archbishop of Canterbury's web page.

The Liturgical Commission has produced a booklet of resources from Common Worship for use in services during this special week. You can download it, and many other ideas for worship and prayer, at the Thy Kingdom Come website.

Update: the resources may now be downloaded here.
