The colourful and family friendly service will incorporate worship led by international singer and songwriter, Lou Fellingham, as well as a fun and edgy testimony from Warren Furman, also known as Ace, from the Gladiators television show. There will be singing from a vibrant Gospel Choir from Calvary Love City. Young people will take centre stage, sharing their personal testimony and leading prayer. Young dancers from the House of Dance from Chester will lead the finale as those attending are sent out to share the Good News of Christ. The service will end with each person attending being given a small prayer gift to take away.

During the eleven days of Thy Kingdom Come it is estimated that more than 5 million prayers will have been said in Cheshire and the surrounding region. The Bishop of Birkenhead, Keith Sinclair, will arrive with some of these prayers during the cathedral event.

Bishop Keith Sinclair said: “All over the region people have been praying that others may come to know Jesus in their lives. Gathering in Chester Cathedral on May 20th, which is Pentecost Sunday, is a fantastic way for all denominations to unite together in worship, prayer and the Spirit of God. I warmly encourage people to come to this very special service.”

Representatives from Churches Together in Cheshire, other denominational leaders and bishops will also attend the service.

Revd. Lyn Weston, Chester Diocesan Missioner, said: “Thy Kingdom Come is such an important opportunity for the Church. How life changing would it be if every Christian prayed for five of their family and friends to come to know the love of Jesus? Just imagine those prayers being answered. We must prepare ourselves that our prayers may be answered in unexpected ways.”

Thy Kingdom Come, began as a simple invitation to prayer from the Archbishops of Canterbury and York in 2016, but has since blossomed into a global movement bringing together hundreds of thousands of Christians from across the globe to pray for more people to come to know the love of Jesus Christ during the 11 day period from Ascension to Pentecost.

In 2017 alone, more than 85 countries ranging from Canada to Australia, South Sudan to Japan - took part and it is hoped that this year even greater numbers of individuals, families and churches will be involved.
