From Ascension Day to Pentecost (Thursday, 30th May to Sunday, 9th June 2019) local churches and individuals will be using the special prayer resources to pray, as did Jesus’ first disciples, for the coming of the Holy Spirit so that people will have an encounter with Jesus Christ.  

Prayer resources are available free from the TKC website (, or in bulk from the Diocesan Office.

Like many other dioceses, we shall be celebrating and praying together in our Cathedral on Saturday, 8th June from 10am until 12.15pm (with an optional Eucharist at 12.30pm).

All sorts of creative ways of praying for the renewal of our diocese will be on offer, with a chance to move round and sample different prayer stations, as well as joining in prayer and worship corporately. The morning will also see the official launch of the Community of St Hugh, our own diocesan prayer community of Christians who commit to praying regularly for the mission of the Church in Greater Lincolnshire.

Save the date now, bring as many people as you can from your church, bring the whole family, and experience a variety of fun and fast-moving ways of praying, or enjoy the peace of this building in which prayer has been offered for centuries.

And in the meantime, why not help to light up the world? Go to the light up the world webpage, register your local prayer events, and see the light spread through the darkness. Customisable resources for use by parishes are available here, and you might also wish to watch the following short film:
