Thy Kingdom Come: Praying for Mission

All dates for this course in 2019 are now complete. Please contact training@derby.anglican.org for more information.

Thy Kingdom Come is a movement of prayer, begun by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016. It calls people to a focused time of prayer between the festivals of Ascension and Pentecost (30 May to 9 June 2019), for people to hear and respond to the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Michael Harvey, founder and Director of the National Weekend of Invitation, will join us outlining how links can be made between Thy Kingdom Come and the National Weekend of Invitation as our prayerful evangelism permeates both.

These workshops are being held in partnership between the Nottingham and Derby District of the Methodist Church and Diocese of Derby within the Church of England. Attendees will have the opportunity hear first-hand from the national Thy Kingdom Come team about the wonderful work God has done and is doing through Thy Kingdom Come, how individuals, families and churches can get involved this year and the wide range of resources available to help.

These sessions are open to all, but booking is essential. They are similar to the Thy Kingdom Come launch events run by Derby Diocese in 2018.

Have you ever considered your spiritual journey to date? Do you keep or want to start a spiritual journal? 

Then why not come and learn how to mind map, a new skill that you can apply effectively in many areas of your spiritual life. 

Mind mapping is a technique that combines words, pictures, symbols and colour to capture information in a radial format.  The programme will teach you the basic technique and give you the tools to produce a mind map of your spiritual journey to date as well as some reflective time to consider that journey.

These sessions are open to all, but booking is essential.
