St. Bartholomew’s Kirby Muxloe
If you would like to join in with the prayer initiative, then please visit the website www.thykingdomcome.global/taking- part  to find out more and to download resources you can use in your home with your family. If you would like to take part in the prayer walk around the village, then please let us know that you want to and we can let you know where the starting point for the walk is and when it is happening. Why do we want to pray for you, I feel that this verse from the Bible tells us why, “Colossians 1:“9  For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives.” So May holds an exciting time not only for each of us as we pray for ourselves and for you but also for the village and as we join with thousands of other Christians praying for our world.

May 2018 - What’s Next? Easter has happened, the sun has finally come out and all seems right with the world, but what is next? As a Church, we focus a lot on prayer and during May, we will be taking part in a world-wide initiative called “Thy Kingdom Come.” This was started a few years ago by Archbishop Justin to encourage prayer in Churches in the UK. It has grown and now encompasses many different Churches and has spread all around the world. Individuals and Churches are encouraged to pray for five people that they know, for people who live in the area and for the love of God to spread out into the community. As a Church, one of the things we will be doing is a prayer walk around the village. Stopping at significant places around the village and praying for them and for the people that work there and those who use them. These might be shops, the library, the school, maybe the doctor’s. So keep an eye out for small groups and families wandering around the village.
