This Evening / This Week

The Baptist Union of Great Britain are holding a short prayer broadcast every Sunday and Wednesday evening at 7pm. The link for this evening's broadcast (and recordings of previous ones) should be available at this page on the Baptists Together website.

Thy Kingdom Come is a global initiative to pray every day during the 11 days between Ascension (Thursday 21st May) and Pentecost (Sunday 31st May) for 5 people who don’t know the love of Christ and don’t follow Christ. To pray for the Spirit to work significantly in those don’t follow Christ, that they might encounter his love and peace and make the best decision anyone can ever make — become followers of Jesus. And that they in turn would come to give their lives in service of the Kingdom of God.
