We invite you to pray with Christians from around the world during the nine days between Ascension and Pentecost, using art and scripture. Changed Lives → Changing Lives is our guiding theme this year as we pray afresh for the coming of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. In doing so, we join thousands of others around the world as part of Thy Kingdom Come – an initiative encouraging people to explore through prayer how they might courageously witness to God’s life-changing work. As the apostles prayed together following Jesus’ ascension, waiting for the Holy Spirit to come at Pentecost, so we wait and pray today. They prayed in obedience, trusting that the way ahead would be revealed. May we, like the disciples, pray anticipating that the Spirit will show us new ways of living and loving. May we be open to where God leads us, to be the change God wants to see in the world - whatever that might require.  As God is at work in us he is also at work through us changing the lives of others. Please join with us as we pray together: ‘Come Holy Spirit: thy kingdom come’ and may our waiting and praying this Novena open our hearts afresh to God’s possibilities.

We welcomed Mrs Paula Dhugga as the new Head of School of Salford Priors Church of England Academy at a service of Welcome and Commissioning at St Matthew's on 15th April 2018.
