Thy Kingdom Come 2023
11 January 2023
Thy Kingdom Come is back for its 8th year and there are several significant changes, to bring new life and in response to the current context we live in.
The need across the world for the transforming power and mercy of God is more stark than ever. How can we partner with God, in prayer and mission, to see more people encounter the love of Christ this year?
Firstly, new daily themes for the resources have been introduced. These themes focus on the character of God – ‘Our Father in Heaven’ – the One to whom we are petitioning and inviting people to know, to love and to serve. To find out more about these themes click here.
Secondly, this year a new sub-theme ‘Living the Kingdom’ has also been introduced. Whilst Thy Kingdom Come will always have its focus as a call to prayer for evangelisation there is an invitation for participants to go one step further.
Mission always comes from the place of prayer, so how can we in this time go the extra mile, empowered by the Holy Spirit, to love and serve those we are praying for or others who are in need? This is about living the Kingdom – individually and corporately – in our context.
Finally, returning to the early days of TKC, we are sensing a call for Christians to gather together (in-person where possible) and collaborate ecumenically locally, regionally, and nationally – being a truly united witness to the world.
We’ve put together 23 ideas for churches to get involved with TKC in 2023. Inspired by all that we’ve seen churches do over the years, we’ve picked some great examples of activities and events that you could consider doing from prayer pilgrimages to crafternoons and prayer postcards. Download the 23 ideas for 2023 to get planning for your church.
