As a part of the global prayer initiative, ‘Thy Kingdom Come’, Southwell Minster invites you to participate in some special interactive prayer stations. Running until 9 June, please feel free to visit at your leisure, pick up a prayer station guide from the welcome desk and in your own time, taking as long as you like, visit each station.
These activities are also suitable for children to do with a carer, and provide an opportunity to pray for ourselves, others and the world as you take some time out from life’s busyness into the quiet of the beautiful Minster building. All are welcome at any time – and there is no entry charge. Diana Ives, Education Officer, says:
‘The Minster is always open for prayer and is a wonderful place to be still and reflect. It’s hoped that visitors will enjoy the opportunity to pray in a variety of new ways in its beautiful, peaceful surroundings. ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ events are happening across the Diocese and beyond and it’s great to be a part of this huge event.’

A free new app containing the booklet will be released in the next few days in time for use during Thy Kingdom Come. It will include Lectionary psalms and readings, images, full audio for Morning, Evening, Prayer During the Day and Night Prayer for Ascension to Pentecost. The aim is to encourage individuals to join a daily pattern of prayer wherever they are and also to support those meeting in groups. Links to the content will also be shared through the Church’s national social media profiles.
