This is the Archbishop of Canterbury and York call to pray for the Christian faith across our country when we are all encouraged to pray for five friends to become Christians.

Colin Thornton is the Coordinator for Good News 4 Swindon writes…

“I’m very excited about what God will do in Swindon and beyond, as we gather once again from many churches across our town to call on God together. In a nutshell, Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray from Ascension to Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus”.

For more details, see the Thy Kingdom Come website: About Us | Thy Kingdom Come

Please can I now ask you to get the message out as widely as you can, and encourage people to get involved in the following ways:

  • Join the prayer gatherings each day – Thursday 13 May to Friday 21 May – at 08:00, 13:00 and 20:00. These will be led by different churches (see table below), and each gathering will last for half an hour.
  • Join for any part (or all!) of the 24 hours of continuous prayer from 08:00 on Saturday 22 May to 08:00 on Sunday 23 May. This will be divided into half-hour sections, so that it is easy to join and leave, and will be led by people from many different churches and Christian organisations.
  • Let’s gather as many of us as possible for the launch on Thursday 13May from 20:00 to 21:00, and also at a final gathering on Sunday 23 May from 08:00 to 09:00!

The Zoom details for all gatherings are the same – click on this link or enter the meeting ID (991-6078-5935) and password (378539).

Finally, a couple more ways for you to get involved as leaders please:

  • You will see in this table that a couple of the daily prayer slots don’t yet have a leader – if you’re able to step in, please could you contact Nigel Howarth. (
  • There are still plenty of slots to fill during the 24 hours of continuous prayer – please get involved by signing up via the online form.
