Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. What started in 2016 as an invitation from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to the Church of England has grown into an international and ecumenical call to prayer.

Light up Bradford in Prayer
We are inviting you to join in to help Light Up The World. Taking place over ten days from Ascension Day Christians around the world are praying for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

Shine your light by pledging to pray today:

Our Thy Kingdom Come events

This Annual Eucharist is a particular opportunity for churches, across the district, to gather to celebrate one of the major Christian Festivals. This year we are pleased to welcome the Bishop of Bradford, the Rt. Revd. Toby Howarth to preach and a specially configured music group to lead our worship. This service also launches the ten days of prayer, Thy Kingdom Come.
