A message from Andrew Micklefield with further details in the attached PDF's

Dear all

Thy Kingdom Come 2017

This important time is nearly upon us. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have called us to prayer during the period from Ascension Day to Pentecost this year. This is an ecumenical time and we encourage everyone to join in with us. We are called to pray that God's kingdom may come in our nation and world and in particular for friends, family and neighbours to come to know Jesus Christ.

Chris Bradish and Christopher Ogilvie Thompson have been working hard on our behalf to put together a programme of 'praying' — thank you both. There are a wide range of praying opportunities around Alton and surrounding area which are detailed in the attached programme. I have sent it as a Word Document, Pages Documents (for who have seen the Apple light!), a PDF A4 document and a PDF booklet form. We would be grateful if you would find a way to get this information out to your congregations either by printing some of these off or emailing out or putting on websites or all three or more ways.

I draw your attention specifically to the introduction to all of this which is the ecumenical Ascension Day Service on Thursday 25th May, 7.30pm in St Lawrence Church. Everyone is very welcome and we will kick start our praying.

If you have any queries please do ask, especially to Chris or Christopher.

With best wishes
Andrew
