Thy Kingdom Come

Thy Kingdom Come is a global wave of prayer from Ascension to Pentecost

In the Diocese of Rochester we encourage every church and church member to take part.

In previous years people and churches across the Diocese have participated in the Archbishops call to pray Thy Kingdom Come in various ways.  

As we were planning for 2020 we had a strong sense to ‘keep it simple’, not to put on major events but rather encourage people to pray within and for their own localities.

We want to encourage people to pray within their own homes using the brilliant resources (prayer journals, novenas, etc) that have been produced. All of these can be downloaded for home use or you can purchase physical copies to be delivered -see Also check out the website for lots of background and testimony from previous years.

Furthermore, you might want to consider how you can get these resources out to others especially the superb interactive family adventure prayer map which ‘comes alive’ with a smart phone app and might be a great tool for those who have young people at home.

Online Workshop

On Wednesday 6 May we offered an online workshop to explore together the resources available, and to share ideas on how to pray Thy Kingdom Come as a socially distanced church community.

For those who couldn't attend, it's available below:



Some fantastic resources are available to help you take part in Thy Kingdom Come - indeed to help you with prayer throughout the year. They include

  • Novena – a booklet designed for nine days of prayer, including art, a Bible passage and prayer each day.
  • Prayer Journal – aimed at teens and adults.
  • Family Adventure Prayer Map and stickers.  

More information about these and other resources for Thy Kingdom Come is available at
