"Thy Kingdom Come"

Thursday 25th May – Sunday 4th June   image 

‘Thy Kingdom Come’ is a global prayer movement which invites Christians around the world to pray between Ascension and Pentecost for more people to come to know Jesus Christ.

What started out as an invitation from the Archbishops’ of Canterbury and York in 2016 to the Church of England has grown into an international call to prayer across all Christian denominations.

The hope is that people will commit to pray with God’s world-wide family – as a church, individually or as a family

As part of our Parish support of this important call to prayer, within our parish …

  • We will be encouraging each other to commit to pray daily for our families and for our neighbours - that God’s Kingdom will come in their lives. This can be in the form of a simple prayer that we can all say as we get up in the morning, and as we go to bed at night.
  • In addition to praying for our families and communities, we will also produce a Prayer Diary to cover the 10 days, helping us to pray for our nation and the world, which will be available in St Mary’s and St Peter’s and online.
You may download your own copy of this Prayer Diary here.

  • There will be an Ascension Day evening service at 8pm Thursday 25th May in St Mary’s to mark the day and begin the 10 days of prayer.

“In praying 'Thy Kingdom Come' we all commit to playing our part in the renewal of the nations and the transformation of communities."

Archbishop Justin Welby.

Welcome to the Parish of Wargrave with Knowl Hill.

Our Parish life is centred around three worshipping communities, coupled with a range of other activities which deepen our life together as Christians, and witness to the villages and hamlets where we live. We try to hold in balance the traditional forms and practices of the Church of England on the one hand, and the ability to move with the times and try out new ideas on the other. By this means, there should be something for everybody in what goes on in our Churches and among our parishioners, young and not-so-young.

At the centre is our belief in Jesus Christ, who lived on earth, died and rose again, in order to bring us into a new and wonderful relationship with God his Father, encouraged and enlivened by the gift of his Holy Spirit, and supported by the Word of God revealed in the Bible. This new life is the basis for our daily lives, directing the way in which we relate to the people and the world around us. You will find here pointers to how this works out in practice in our Parish activities.


We hope and pray that through these web pages you will learn more about us, and want to come and find out more about what we believe, how we express our belief, and the many ways in which we enjoy the company of each other in our Churches. You will also find  here links to a wealth of information about the Church of England and our place in the Diocese of Oxford and the Deanery of Sonning.
