Thy Kingdom Come – Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus, with prayers and other resources for the period between Ascension Day and Pentecost (21st – 31st May 2020).

Faith @ Home – Faith at Home is a national campaign from the Church of England that builds on the work of Growing Faith and Everyday Faith to support the faith development and pastoral care of children and young people. There are resources and videos for parents and families at the link above.

Why not download and print this picture of praying hands and put it up in your window to let your neighbours, and those who pass by your home, know that you are praying at this critical time.

It’s way of expressing the hope we have in God, but it will also encourage others as they pray, perhaps for the first time.

You can find the poster (and other versions of it) here

 

May 10th – 16th

It’s Christian Aid week and obviously we will have to do things a little differently this year.
Here we have some resources, initially from last year, to do for you and your little ones to get the week in your mind. Christian Aid Resources

We have also set up a JustGiving page so if you do wish to donate to Christian Aid as you would normally, then you still can. – https://www.justgiving.com/team/ChristChurchDartford

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The Leadership of Christ Church have decided to NOT open the church for private prayer.

This has been a difficult decision to make but feels the right thing to do in these ever changing times.

Please continue to check in here or on our Facebbok or Twitter pages for further updates. We will be asking for prayer requests daily so please do let us know of them.

Sunday 22nd March

Happy Mothering Sunday. A strange one certainly. We will worship in different ways. An address from Rev Laura will be added to the ‘Talks’ section of the website very soon, as well as our social media platforms.

We will not be live streaming services at this time (although this mayy or may not change in the future), but we welcome you to participate in live streams done by other churches.

A list can be found on A Church Near You, where you can look locally or for any church nationwide.

There has been an update from our church wardens which can be found here. This update has also be emailed to those we have a contact for and a posted copy will be with those we don’t very soon, if not already.

This has been shared along with a prayer resource pack which can be found here. This can be viewed, downloaded or printed as you wish.

The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are calling for Church of England churches to put public worship on hold and become a “different sort of church” in the coming months to face the challenge of coronavirus.
