Thy Kingdom Come
With just a few days before the start of Thy Kingdom Come, the period between Ascension Day and Pentecost there is still time to participate:
There are two Eucharist services at Holy Cross on Ascension Day - 13th May at 10.30am and 7.30pm.
There will be some prayer stations at Holy Cross from Monday 17th to 22nd May, where everyone is welcome to use this space for prayers.
Pentecost, 23rd May, there is no New Way service but Cathrine Ngangira will be co-leading a simple service at Kingswood Village Hall at 11am with Rev Mark Pavey. This will be outside. If the weather is "inclement" then it will be a bookable indoor service. Details to follow. Pray for good weather!
Finally, as part of the global "Thy Kingdom Come" ecumenical initiative there's an opportunity to join the Maidstone Churches 24-7 Prayer vigil. It's very simple - just sign up using the link below and wherever you are at that time (from 10am Thursday 13th May through to 10am on Pentecost Sunday, 23rd May) 24-7 Prayer International - Sign-Up
