Thy Kingdom Come 2020
This year the call to pray together under the banner of "Thy Kingdom Come" during the period which runs from Ascension Day (Thursday May 21st) to Pentecost (Sunday 31st May) is even more relevant and urgent.
However, we need to observe social distancing and so cannot plan any large public gatherings.
We are inviting everyone to join in prayer across Wollaton. This might be on your own at home, by submitting a prayer request below or by tying a ribbon at one of the sites across Wollaton during this period.
You might like to think of 5 people you could pray for and commit to doing so over the 10 days of "Thy Kingdom Come" (and perhaps beyond!).
You may wish to use the prayer journal or download the "Thy Kingdom Come" app from Google Play or the App Store.
Our church buildings might be closed but the Church, its people, are alive and active!

We have deliberately made this anonymous.
Please contact the office separately if you want to find out what is happening at the Church and join in.
At a number of locations around Wollaton... we have placed posters and supplied ribbons for people to tie to the adjacent railings or wall as a symbol of their prayer or hope. The sites during TKC are St Leonard's community centre, Bramcote Lane shops by the pedestrian crossing, the Vale Community Centre and the noticeboard by St Thomas More on Bramcote Lane... or why not tie to your gate.
The prayer could be for family, friends, for Wollaton, for businesses, for Nottingham, the UK, the world.... For health, for security, for climate change, for peace.
Prayer requests sent via the website or posted through the letterbox at St Leonard's Community Centre will be incorporated into a 24 hour prayer vigil, being held towards the end of "Thy Kingdom Come".
Each household at St Leonard's should receive an envelope with some Thy Kingdom Come resources. We wish we could share wider, but at the moment we cannot directly. For Balloon Prayers, please open the link: Praying with balloons
However, please click here for a link to some further resources and information; including a Family Prayer Adventure map, with links to an augmented reality "TKC MAP AR" app, a prayer journal and links to the "Thy Kingdom Come" app, with daily videos, bible readings, reflections and podcasts.
Archbishop Justin Welby commented that the Adventure map and app "... teaches us to pray.. which is about the best thing we can ever do in our lives, is to pray"
