Thousands of people around the country took part in events on Sunday to mark Pentecost and the end of Thy Kingdom Come initiative, including Beacon events at 37 cathedrals (see gallery for more). It was the third instalment of what is now a global, ecumenical prayer movement, which invites Christians to pray throughout Ascension-tide. Several thousand young people in St Albans on Saturday evening listened to Archbishop Welby and the US Presiding Bishop, Michael Curry, fresh from their involvement in the wedding of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
