Rev. Helen Kirk: April 2018
For the last couple of years, churches across the country have taken part in a 10-day prayer initiative called 'Thy Kingdom Come' which starts on Ascension Day and finishes on Pentecost Sunday, 10th -20th May 2018
This year all of the churches in the Vale of Aylesbury Circuit are taking part and AMC is no exception.
During the 10.30 service on 13th May people will be given the opportunity to write prayers and put them on a prayer 'tree.' This 'tree' will be up in the church all week for people to add their prayers too.
Then on Tuesday 15th May we will be having a day of prayer:
7.30am Morning prayer
12.30pm Lunch time prayer
1pm Prayers around community centre
2pm Noticing walk through the town
7.30pm Prayers for healing & wholeness.
You are invited to join in any part of the day or if that is not convenient to pray in your own way at home. We will have resource booklets for those who would want them and an interactive prayer pack for families.
