Thy Kingdom Come


What is Thy Kingdom Come?
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement calling on Christians to pray that people, friends, family members and colleagues, might come to know Jesus Christ during a focused time of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost (Thursday 26th May – Sunday 5th June 2022)

The hope is that:
  • People will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family - as a church, individually or as a family.
  • Churches will hold prayer events across the UK and in other parts of the world.
  • People will be transformed through prayer by the Holy Spirit, finding fresh confidence to be witnesses for Jesus Christ.
 
“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities." Archbishop Justin Welby
 
Here at Christ Church St Andrews, over the years, we have engaged with TKC with many members of the church family attending prayer events in church or online, prayer walking, praying for our 5 and praying for our town. The pandemic has changed much but God is still the same and it is His Kingdom that we long to be extended in Herne Bay. Do check out our church website and see how you can get involved this year… 
 
For more information, please talk to Rev John Currie or Denise Parrett.
 
Why not use this prayer which thousands of people across the world will be praying during Thy Kingdom Come, and which will be at the heart of every event.
 
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. Amen.

The South Room Larder is open every Tuesday and Friday from 10am - 12 noon for anyone in need of food.

Christ Church St Andrews have been privileged to provide food through The Larder, generously donated by the people of Herne Bay, local supermarkets and the church family.  If you, or someone you know is struggling, please come to The Larder at the South Room, William Street, Herne Bay on Tuesday or Friday between 10am - 12noon and we will do our best to help you.  Or, you can phone 07599 608 041 leaving a short message with your phone number and we will contact you as soon as we can.

South Room

The South Room Community Hub is open on Tuesdays and Fridays from 10am - 12 noon.  These are the same times as The Larder.  Visitors can seek pointers on possible benefit entitlement (universal credit  etc.) and help on a range of issues including energy costs, as well as help with CVs, job searches and a weekly job list.  People welcoming a chat and coffee / tea may also drop in.  Whatever the issue, we always seek to provide help and hope.

You can contact the South Room at the email address of southroomchristchurch@gmail.com (picked up daily), or leave a message on our landline of 01227 283703 (or mobile 07726 934195) which should be checked on Tuesdays and Fridays.

If you are part of the church family of Christ Church St Andrews and feel this ministry is something you may feel called to help with, please contact David Nancarrow via the above email address.  We want to strengthen our team to be able to respond well to an increasing demand.  This ministry dove-tails very well with other church ministries and we often have the opportunity to invite people to other church events such as Bay Ignite or Sunday services.
