Thy Kingdom Come

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2017 Ascension Day service held at St Stephen’s and the Pentecost service held at All Saints. It was wonderful to share with Christians from other churches in praying together for our locality and the world.

Let us continue to pray ‘Thy Kingdom Come!’
