Last Friday (18th May) a large number of walkers of all ages joined Bishop Libby and Archdeacon Ian for the last leg of their ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer walks, in Bowdon Deanery. The 7.5 mile route took us from Warburton, via Partington, Carrington and Ashton-on-Mersey. Representatives from many of our churches across the deanery, joined us and each and every church was prayed for on route. This was a very ecumenical event too with colleagues from the local Methodist, Baptist, Catholic and Ivy Church Plant walking and praying with us. On route we visited a wide variety of places including, schools, care homes, churches of several denominations, urban estates, a Christian play centre and busy roads – praying for individuals, families, children, workers and visitors in many walks of life.Rev.
