This special service is the culmination of Thy Kingdom Come 2018, an ecumenical global wave of prayer encouraging Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost (10 May – 20 May) for more people to know Jesus Christ.  With Cathedrals around the world this service brings Christians together of all ages and different churches across the region to worship the risen and ascended Jesus, to pray the prayer of Pentecost ‘Come Holy Spirit', and pray that others will come to know Jesus Christ.
