THE ARCHBISHOPS of Canterbury and York are inviting every parish, fresh expression of church, church school, retreat house and praying community to join in ten days of prayer for evangelism and witness in the run up to Pentecost 2017.

The aim is simple and threefold:

  • To join in prayer with the whole family of God the Father
  • To pray for the empowering of God the Holy Spirit
  • That we may be effective witnesses to God the Son, Jesus Christ.

In a letter inviting every clergyperson in England to take part they wrote: “Jesus prayed at the Last Supper that we, those who follow him, might ‘be one that the world might believe.’ There is an invitation then, to make a lasting difference in our nation and in our world, by responding to his call to find a deep unity of purpose in prayer.”

In 2016 more than 100,000 Christians joined in over 3,000 events and services in churches and Christian communities across England to pray for our witness to Jesus Christ and those we seek to reach in Thy Kingdom Come 2016. Flagship ‘Beacon Events’ packed out a number of Cathedrals (with over 300,000 people watching online) and there is no knowing how many individuals played their part with prayer at home. For some that might be hosting special prayer events, prayer rooms or holiday clubs. For others it might be using the wide range of resources that will be available to encourage individual prayer. For others it might mean working with others in hosting your own ‘beacon event’.
