From Kangaroo Flat in South Australia, to the River Cam in Cambridge, things are gearing for the launch of this year’s Thy Kingdom Come movement!
This week, Archbishop Justin will be filming down in Cambridge, his personal story of coming to Christ during his time at University. The film will feature Archbishop Justin and his long-time friend, Nick Hills, who he credits as being a key figure in his early faith journey, coxing on the River Cam. More information coming soon.
A number of high profile ecumenical leaders will be in conversation with Archbishop Justin this week for a series of short films which will be made available in the lead up to this year’s TKC 2018 period. Names include Cardinal Vincent Nichols (Catholics), Gareth Powell (Methodists), Paul Harcourt (New Wine) and Bishop Angaelos (Coptic Church UK) to name a few.
Next week, there will be two official launch events for Thy Kingdom Come, with a number of TKC champions and high-profile people planning to attend. The events take place at Bishopthorpe on 23rd Jan and at Lambeth Palace on 24th Jan where they will hear more details about plans for this year’s Thy Kingdom Come, in addition to receiving the official TKC resource pack.
Last year Christians in more than 85 countries took part in Thy Kingdom Come and with renewed vigour, we are hoping to build on this momentum. Some powerful stories and testimonies are emerging which we will share over the coming months. Similarly, there has also been many new enquiries about TKC from locations far and wide, including an Anglican Vicar from Kangaroo Flat, South Australia who recently got in contact to say this was one of the most exciting initiatives she had seen in a long time!
