On Thursday 21st May, Ascension Day, the worldwide Anglican Church began our time of prayer ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ which we have marked in these three parishes since the initiative began.  This year, we had to do things a little differently, given that we still cannot use our buildings (or at least their interiors!) for prayer. Attached are three links to prayer sheets, for Childrenyoung people and adults, for you to download to focus your prayer life for these days between Ascension Day and Pentecost (31st May).
And here’s a family digital prayer adventure map!
Family Worship
There are two additions to the YouTube channel especially for family worship - ‘First Steps’ service for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers and, with the help of Kathy and Barrie Huggins, an online 'Messy Church'; these can be accessed and enjoyed at any time. Why not share the link with families who you know might appreciate it?
