Nine Days of Prayer 2018, a part of Thy Kingdom Come

Join once again with 50,000 people from around the world praying using the Novena materials between Friday 11 May and Saturday 19 May as part of the global prayer movement: Thy Kingdom Come.

A Novena is a traditional prayer of nine days between Pentecost and Ascension when Christ’s disciples prayed constantly. In 2018 our Novena theme is Changed Lives – Changing Lives and we are working with London-based Christian illustrator Ian Pentney. Art and scripture create a space for God to speak to us afresh. Our encounters with God change us: How do our transformed lives change the world?

Pledge to Pray here.
