Wondering what’s on in Wokingham All Saints and what our main focus is at the moment? Take a look at this page and find out what’s currently important to the community and what’s on in Wokingham.
For the next couple of weeks, our focus will be on Thy Kingdom Come. Keep on reading to find out more.
What is “Thy Kingdom Come”?
“Thy Kingdom Come” is a simple, yet powerful, idea for a global wave of prayer. It invites Christians around the world to pray for people to come to know Jesus Christ. It takes place over the 11 days between Ascension Day and Pentecost Sunday, this year 10th – 20th May.
How can you take part?
For more information read our Rector’s letter about it.
How are we joining in as a church at All Saints?
Pick up a special booklet of prayers and readings for the 11 days when you come to church.
Join the All Saints Extreme Prayer challenge – we would like to encourage you to take your prayer to the extreme! That will mean something different to every person. For some praying outdoors on a quiet bench will be extreme and for others going into a public event and praying there quietly will be a challenge.
Pray and think what it means to you and take up the challenge and… before you pray, while you pray or after take a photo or a video of yourself and post it on All Saints Facebook page. All you need to do is log in to your Facebook account, go to All Saints page and share your photo or video with us. If you’re having troubles with that or don’t have a Facebook account, you can email email@example.com and we’ll be able to help you.
You can find some ‘extreme’ prayer suggestions on Thy Kingdom Come website.
