Thy Kingdom Come
Thy Kingdom Come () is a world-wide prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus.
After the very first Ascension Day, when having risen from the dead on Easter Sunday Jesus returned to God in Heaven, the Disciples prayed while they waited for the companion Jesus had promised them - God's Holy Spirit (Pentecost).
Like the first Disciples, our reliance on the gift of the Holy Spirit is total – on our own we can do nothing.
We have arranged a series of online and actual services with prayer stations at all the churches across the East Durham Methodist Church Circuit in support of Thy Kingdom Come 2021.
Please join us. We pray that you will:
Deepen your own relationship with Jesus Christ
Pray for your friends and family to come to faith in Jesus
Pray for the empowerment of God's Holy Spirit in witnessing to others for Jesus
Below are details of how you can join in.

Simeon Wood in Concert
East Durham Methodist Circuit presents international flautist Simeon Wood, exclusive on YouTube.
Simeon presents his successful online show which was conceived and
written to celebrate all that is good about life, to help motivate and
make a positive difference to people’s lives. A show packed with great
music, laughter and reflection.
Tracks such as Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah", ELO's "Mr Blue Sky",
"Riverdance" and the massive "Never Enough from "The Greatest Showman"
In a glittering career, Simeon has played in some unusual places from
castles and caves to giant redwood forests. He’s also appeared on
