In 2016 the Archbishops of Canterbury and York called for Christians to use the time between Ascension Day and Pentecost to pray that more people might come to know Jesus Christ. This year that call has been repeated and has been echoed by churches of other denominations nationally, and the Anglican Communion globally www.thykingdomcome.global.
In Fakenham, events over the ten days will include a mixture of short daily prayer sessions (lasting approx. 20 mins); prayers in our usual Thursday and Sunday worship; and a day for anyone who would like to explore prayer and discover different ways of praying.
