Welcome to our shared ecumenical Thy Kingdom Come 2017 Novena website for the Winchester diocese. Please join with others in this extraordinary ecumenical wave of prayer, across parish communities and deaneries, across the country, and across the world
for 9 days of prayer together between Ascension and Pentecost:
Thursday 25th May - Sunday 4th June 2017
This site hopes to bring together news, plans, resources and opportunities for praying together in churches, parishes and deaneries across the Winchester diocese.
It relies on your contributions of course, so
please email your church, community or deanery’s
news, events, plans, photos, testimonies or other contributions here
(photos and news from last year as well as plans & ideas for this year very gratefully received;
they'll be posted up here for all to share and gain ideas and encouragement).
On Pentecost Sunday there’s a wonderful opportunity to all join together at the
Pentecost Beacon Service at Winchester Cathedral
Sunday 5th June, evening
Jesus prayed at the Last Supper that we, those who follow him, might ‘be one that the world might believe’. We are invited to make a lasting difference in our nations and in our world, by responding to his call to find a deep unity of purpose in prayer.
Archbishop Justin Welby
