York Minster will host a prayer and praise event led by the Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu, as part of a global wave of prayer taking place between 25 May and 4 June.

Thy Kingdom Come is an international movement which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to know Jesus Christ.

The movement started in 2016 with an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York to the Church of England and has grown into an international call to prayer.

As well as encouraging prayer everywhere, a number of beacon events are taking place around the country. These are designed to gather, ignite and inspire worship and intercession for a generation to rise up with a fresh passion and confidence for the proclamation of the Gospel. 

The York Minster event is open to all with young people particularly encouraged to attend. Doors will open at 7pm with the service starting at 7.30pm. Free tickets for the event are available here.

Other events taking place in and around the cathedral as part of the Thy Kingdom Come movement include a prayer station in the Minster’s Lady Chapel and an outdoor worship and evangelism event organised by St Cuthbert's House of Prayer and One Voice on the Minster’s South Piazza from 9am to 5pm on Saturday 3 June.
