On 15th May, Winchester Cathedral will host one of six Beacon celebrations which the Church of England are hoping will galvanise a movement of mission and prayer across the UK.
Thy Kingdom Come is an initiative from the Archbishop of Canterbury and supported by 24-7 Prayer and Worship Central. Pentecost events at Winchester, St Pauls, Coventry, Canterbury, Durham and York will the celebrate the end of a week of prayer across the country and send people out to share their faith in their local communities.
In Winchester, the event on the 15th will take place in the Cathedral and feature worship leader Matt Redman and 24-7 Prayer leader, Carla Harding.
Bishop of Basingstoke and former Vicar of Christ Church in Winchester, Rt Revd David Williams has taken to online video to explain more about these Beacon Events.
Churches through the Diocese are planning a week of 24-7 Prayer leading up to Pentecost Sunday. A training day has already taken place and Churches Together Prayer Champion, Andrew Walsh has been sharing the stories of our own prayer week which took place in January.
Finally, the Cathedral will be hosting interactive prayer stations from 6th to 15th May, leading up the Sunday event. Why not get involved in your area.
