Global Wave of Prayer 'Thy Kingdom Come'

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, is inviting Christians around the world to pray as one for people to know Jesus Christ.  This coming week, churches and individuals around the world will join together in prayer.  All Saints will be open 12-12.30 each day (Monday - Saturday) as part of this world-wide event.   This is the prayer around which the event will be centred:

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your Word
may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Here are some prayers which you may also find useful:

This morning's bells

You may have noticed that the bells this morning rang a little longer than usual and were half-muffled.  This was a quarter peal and was the bell-ringers' tribute to the people of Manchester, especially in memory of those who were killed and injured in the attack on Monday.
