Thy Kingdom Come 2019

‘THY KINGDOM COME’ 2019 – Ascension to Pentecost

Thank you to everyone who took part in the local 2019 ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative called the Shropshire Way Prayer Walk – especially Pauline Mack in her role as the Salop Prayer Advocate. It was a huge undertaking Prayer Walking around the county following the Shropshire Way. It was a wonderful Christian pilgrimage encountering and communing with God along the way.

For more details about the national ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative, including a wide range of resources go to the national website. Thy Kingdom Come has wide appeal and encourages Christians to think of prayer in the larger context of their communities, counties, regions and nations.

Two more ways to engage locally with Thy Kingdom Come:

1. Baking Bread Together
A very simple concept: gather together, either in a home or Church kitchen, a group of friends or neighbours and make and bake bread together. For more info: Baking Bread Leaflet

An opportunity for conversation, laughter, prayer and the chance to enjoy beautiful home-made bread! Suitable for Christians and non-Christians, indeed we hope and pray it will be a wonderful mixing place for all.

On our FaceBook page https://www.facebook.com/thykingdomcomeshropshire you will find recipes for bread and for scones (you can of course use your own favourite recipe!) together with suggestions as to how you can use the time creatively.

We encourage you to make two loaves. One is kept for your own enjoyment and the second is to give away to someone.

2. Loving, Hurting Dreaming: Images to Bring People Together.
A wonderful interactive art installation created by Jake Lever (Teaching Fellow at University of Warwick). Each image is mounted on a panel approx 180cm square and is in gouache and ink on silver leaf on paper. They are designed to provide a springboard for lively discussion, fresh thinking and exploration around Christian faith as well as a resource to inspire prayer. For more info: Art & Spirit Leaflet

The three panels with the artwork on are supplemented by a fourth panel which provides an opportunity for visitors to add their own response.

The artwork is available to engage with local communities through their Schools and Churches. Resources that accompany the artwork include materials for a School Assembly, for Key Stages 1-5 and also quiet day materials for use by local churches.
