The ten day between the Ascension of Our Lord and Pentecost is especially a time of prayer.

The words of the Lord's Prayer are very appropriate - especially the fourth line of the traditional words of this prayer, when we pray that God's kingdom on earth will come: 'Thy Kingdom Come'.

Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, decided last year that it would be a good thing to use these ten days to pray for God's kingdom coming amongst us, and to pray that people everywhere might come to a closer relationship with Jesus, and through him, with God.

At Bourne Abbey we are responding to the Archbishop's vision by committing ourselves to spending 15 minutes in prayer and reflection each day during this time between Ascension and Pentecost.

We invite you to join with Fr Chris, Fr Peter and Derek Page who will be leading this time of prayer and reflection - as we bring ourselves, those we love, and those we hold dearas friends, to God. Each time of prayer and reflection begins at 12 noon - except for the one on Friday 2nd June, which is at 12.30pm.

All are welcome..
