Thy Kingdom Come 2

Sadly, it has not been possible to organise a wave of prayer for the days between Ascension and Pentecost via Zoom for the Heart of Norfolk Group, as had been hoped. However, there’s a wealth of other resources being offered, including: 

An invitation to join with Bishop Graham
for night prayer via Zoom

Bishop Graham is inviting everyone across the diocese to join him at 9pm each evening between Ascension Day and Pentecost in a virtual Compline service. Together with millions of other Christians around the world we will be praying the words of Jesus, 'Thy Kingdom Come'.

'Compline' is the ancient 'office' with which monastic communities end their day of prayer. The word comes from the Latin 'completorium' which means completion, so the day is complete when this time of prayer is offered.

The liturgy for each evening is available to download here.

Compline will be held every evening starting on Thursday 21 May (Ascension Day) until (and including) Saturday 30 May.

Zoom meeting invitation is available here:

New daily reflection sheets

The Revd Canon Susanna Gunner has written some daily reflections which include a painting, short reflection and a prayer to help make connections between aspects of our journey from Ascension to Pentecost and the global pandemic. Please share them with others and perhaps print out for a friend who is not online.

Ascension to Pentecost

Poetry from the Cathedral

As part of Thy Kingdom Come, every evening from Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday a member of Norwich Cathedral’s Chapter will be sharing one of their favourite poems at 8pm on YouTube.
