Thy Kingdom Come

What is Thy Kingdom Come?

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which the Archbishop of Canterbury is inviting people around the world to join. He is calling on Christians to pray that people might know Jesus Christ during a focused time between Ascension and Pentecost from 10th - 20th May 2018. 

It’s not complicated – the Archbishop’s invitation is simply asking people to pray in whatever way they want, with whoever they want and wherever they can, that others might know Jesus Christ

We hope 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

The Journey - 18th May - 20th May 2018

We want to invite young generations to be part of Thy Kingdom Come. So, as part of the Diocese of Chester’s involvement there will be a weekend residential, specifically designed for young people in school years 7-11, organised and delivered by a dedicated team of experienced DBS checked youth leaders from across the Diocese of Chester. It’s a time for young people to gather with others who share similar beliefs and outlook on life, and to engage with Christianity in a way which may be new to them. It’s the perfect place for young people and youth leaders to build stronger relationships and spend time with their youth groups, without the hassle for the leader of organising a residential.


Our programme is part of ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ and includes; workshops (art, video, dance, drama, song writing, and hard questions), wide games, Bible teaching, prayer, contemporary worship, discussions and the opportunity to make new friends, all in a safe space to build relationship and discipleship with God.


We know that youth leaders work tirelessly for their young people. We want to encourage and support them in their ministry by offering them and other youth leaders space to connect, share stories and collaborate. To make The Journey as little work for youth leaders as possible, we have created a pack with all youth leaders need including: flyer, letter to parents, consent and booking forms. You can find the information on our Residentials page.
