Thy Kingdom Come Global Prayer Initiative 2023

Thy Kingdom Come Global Prayer Initiative, Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday 2023 (Thursday 18 May – Sunday 28 May)


I write to commend to you, the Thy Kingdom Come Global Prayer Initiative, which runs this year from Ascension Day to Pentecost Sunday (Thursday 18 May – Sunday 28 May):


Thy Kingdom Come was launched in May 2016 and has since grown into a movement which unites Christians from across different traditions to pray for family and friends, neighbours and colleagues, to come to faith in Jesus Christ.  It is my prayer that those who have not heard the Good News of the love of God for each one of us will hear it for themselves and come to a living faith.


The Church of Scotland has partnered in Thy Kingdom Come since November 2018, and I would encourage you to consider participating in 2023:


It would be really good to hear stories of your participation in Thy Kingdom Come from previous years; there is an Impact Report which offers a picture of the global engagement with Thy Kingdom Come in 2022:


Once more, may I commend Thy Kingdom Come to you, and pray that together we may see the name of Jesus Christ honoured among the nations.


Yours sincerely,



Rt Rev Dr Iain Greenshields         


Moderator of the General Assembly

To all who are weary and seek rest; to all who mourn and long for comfort;
to all who struggle and desire victory; to all who sin and need a saviour;
to all who are idle and look for service; to all who are strangers and want fellowship;
to all who hunger and thirst after righteousness; and to whomsoever will come;
our church has opened wide the doors and, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, says to you...   



We are a Church of Scotland congregation situated in the beautiful market town of Moffat, in Southwest Scotland.


We are delighted to have the linked Parishes of Kirkpatrick Juxta and Wamphray affiliated with our congregation in Moffat.


We are delighted to welcome you to join us for our weekly worship at 11.15am each Sunday.

A very warm welcome awaits all.


The children are a treasured part of our congregation, as well as the wider community here in Moffat. 


St Andrew's Church offers a range of regular and one-off events for all ages and interests throughout the year.


Please get in touch if you know of someone in the community who may be in need of care or pastoral support.


Let us build a house where prophets speak, and words are strong and true,
where all God's children dare to seek, to dream God's reign anew.

Here the cross will stand as witness and as symbol of God's grace; here as one we claim the faith of Jesus:
All are welcome, all are welcome, all are welcome in this place.
