Thy Kingdom ComeWith just two days to go, there is so much prayer planned around Cornwall for Thy Kingdom Come – from prayer stations to cabins, walks to labyrinths, here is a round-up of most of what we know is going on. If we’ve missed something, we’re sorry (and we undoubtedly have) but please do let us know if you are doing something and would like us to help you promote it. Also remember to click on the map and help us light up Cornwall, and just in case you’re flagging this video reminds us what it’s all about.
