The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are inviting churches to pray for the evangelisation of the nation during the week before the Day of Pentecost 2016, in an event they are calling ‘Thy Kingdom Come’.
In the Diocese of Blackburn, as part of our contribution to the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ initiative, Bishop Julian is asking everyone to use this time to specifically pray for God’s blessing on the northern bishops’ Crossroads Mission which is taking place in Lancashire from September 8 – 11.
The national website www.thykingdom.co.uk has inspiration and resources to help with prayers
Monday 9th May at 7.30pm Freedom In Christ. Discipleship Course at All Saints' Church.
This 13 week Discipleship Course will be run every 2 weeks. It is a key component of our year of Discipleship. Please consider engaging with this as ‘Discipleship’ is a key issue we are addressing as part of Vision 2026. The course is for Christians to help them discover the freedom they have in Christ. It is very practical and the reviews are excellent. It is a major time commitment but could have a huge impact on us as individuals and us as a church. It will also involve an away day in October.
