WHAT IS THIS?
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement, which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.
WHAT IS ON AT ST THOMAS'S?
On Ascension Day, Thursday May 10th, there will be a sung Eucharist at 8pm where we will be joined by some members of the other Anglican chrches in Southborough and Bidborough.
On Saturday May 12th, there is an exciting day from 10 am to 4 pm called a Patchwork of Prayer and Praise and refreshments will be available all day.
This day includes both room for craft activities and quiet space for prayer. We plan to make a giant patchwork banner, with help from everyone who comes. You can choose to come for the whole day, or just pop in for a while. Children are welcome.
The church is open, as usual in summer, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday each week from 9 am to 5 pm.
Compline is said on Mondays at 8 pm. Morning prayer is said at 9 am Tuesday to Friday, and Evening Prayer at 5 pm Wednesday to Friday. There is a said Eucharist on Wednesdays mornings at 9.45 am.
