Join a great wave of prayer. 13-23 May 2021.

With the great challenges faced by so many over the last year, the various Thy Kingdom Come resources have been redesigned to be a real help to the Church in the current times. With resources for a gathered, online, or hybrid approach, for use in churches, schools or in the home. There is also a huge free resources giveaway for local churches. Whatever age or tradition, we have resources that will spiritually nourish and encourage all.

How to run #ThyKingdomCome in the local church:

On April 12th, Thy Kingdom Come will be hosting a webinar on the various ways churches can practically participate in their local contexts.

The sessions will be run by Canon Jean Kerr. Please feel free to share this with your networks.

The Cheeky Pandas Series

An 11-part fun-filled and Bible based series, with songs, animated stories, prayer and interviews with special guests including Bear Grylls and Gemma Hunt. All the songs are available to be used as separate lyric and action videos, and each episode is accompanied by an activity pack and family service plan.

This is a free resource for children and families, to be used in church services (both in-person and digitally), children’s ministry, in schools assemblies and at home. Please see an information sheet that includes a synopsis for each episode, which we hope will be helpful to churches as they plan their hybrid digital and in-person service content for after Easter. You can view/download the first episode here, see the accompanying activity pack here, and family service plan here.

Please do pass this first episode on to church leaders and children’s worker’s in your network, so that they can start to plan how they might be able to use it over the season ahead. We ask that you join us in praying that this resource engages children and families in the Bible and prayer, and ultimately, helps them develop a beautiful life-long relationship with God… with some Panda fun along the way!
