Many churches across the country get involved in Thy Kingdom Come by holding an event linked to prayer and mission during the period between Ascension and Pentecost. This might take the form of 24-7 prayer, prayer stations and prayer walks, or a Thy Kingdom Come themed service on Pentecost Sunday.

If you have any stories to share of what’s going on in your own area of the Diocese, or you’d like to tell us how your prayer event or celebration went, we’d love to hear from you. Email us (including pictures if you have them) at We can then add the information to the section below, so others can see what’s going on in their area and get inspired!

Around the Diocese

In 2017, churches around the Diocese of Derby got involved in all sorts of ways – special services, prayer stations, prayer rooms, times of prayer… even a prayer kite festival and afternoon tea!

How will your church get involved?

If you'd like someone to come and talk to a PCC, synod or chapter, do get in touch with Jason Kennedy (details below) and he would be more than happy to come and and help you to get involved.

Thy Kingdom Come is about helping churches to do what we are called to do by God - to pray for our communities and those in them to hear, experience and receive the Good News of Jesus. Churches can get involved however they want, in any way that works for them.
