Local churches pilgrimage: 10th – 19th May

This year’s Lordsbridge Prayer Pilgrimage takes place from 10 to 19 May 2018, coinciding with the Archbishop of Canterbury’s Thy Kingdom Come call to prayer, now used by Christians all around the world.

Caldecote Church is open daily for visitors. You are welcome to spend time at the prayer stations in quiet reflection, look around the church and help yourself to a cup of tea or coffee. The church neighbours at the Old Rectory kindly offer the use of their WC facilities – just knock on the front door.

You are invited to walk, cycle or drive around the Lordsbridge Team churches and to pray as part of the Thy Kingdom Come call to prayer, which this year has as its central prayer the following:

Almighty God,
your ascended Son has sent us into the world
to preach the good news of your kingdom:
inspire us with your Spirit
and fill our hearts with the fire of your love,
that all who hear your word may be drawn to you,
through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Pilgrimage leaflet (pdf)  gives the address for each church, opening times, details of weekday services and local facilities.
