'Thy Kingdom Come'

We are now in the period between Ascension and Pentecost, a time of waiting with the

disciples for the revealing of the Holy Spirit. The period has become known as ‘Thy Kingdom

Come’, a time for us to focus on prayer. To mark this, we are holding a 24-hour prayer

session focused on St Mary’s Island. It will begin at 11.30am on Wednesday 24th May from

when there will be a presence on the island until 9.30pm. Following this we will move to St

Mary’s church for continued prayer during the night and then return to the Island at 9.30am on

Thursday morning for until the late afternoon when we will end with time of prayer. This is

an opportunity for us to focus on prayer through various means and resources that will be

available. We will focus on the lighthouse as being a beacon for North Tyneside and with our

prayers sending light into all corners including schools, places of work, hospitals and care

homes, homes and shops and the lives of the people who live and work in the area.

You would be very welcome to join us, and it would help if you would sign up for a session

via the parish office. You will not be asked to step out of your comfort zone, to pray out loud

or lead any prayers, just to be present and offer your prayers in whatever way you are
