Archbishops launch evangelism week of prayer

From The Church Times-

ALL serving clergy in the Church of England will soon receive a letter from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York asking them to take part in a week of prayer for evangelism at Pentecost.

The event — “Thy Kingdom Come” — will run from 8 to 15 May. Cathedrals and churches across England are expected to hold events to encourage churchgoers to “share their faith with their friends”.

The centrepiece will be “beacon” services in Durham, Canterbury, York, Coventry, St Paul’s, and Win­chester cathedrals, led by bishops, well-known worship leaders, and musicians, including the Revd Tim Hughes, and Martin Smith.

“Thy Kingdom Come” is the fruit of two years’ discussion by the Arch­bishops’ Task Group on Evangelism. Details of the week were given in a report from the group which will be discussed at the General Synod this month.
