About us

Christians in Parliament is an All-Party Parliamentary Group, which exists to support and encourage all Members and staff in their work in the Houses of Parliament.

We do this through:

  • Weekly Bible study and prayer groups, weekly chapel services in the Chapel of St Mary Undercroft and through one-to-one support of Members and staff. Find more details on these groups on our regular events page.
  • Guest speaker events and discussion groups examining the truth and relevance of the Christian faith to personal and political life. Audio recordings from many of these events can be found on our events archive and on iTunes and Soundcloud.
  • Events and written briefings which seek to bring Biblical reflection to contemporary political discussions. See our Resources page for previous reports and briefings.

We also host the annual National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast, which takes place in Westminster Hall. This event is attended by over 700 guests, including Members of both Houses, ambassadors and church leaders from across the country. Its purpose is to reflect upon the personal and public relevance of the Christian faith, as well as strengthening relationships between church leaders and parliamentarians. Bible Society supports us in organising this event as our chief sponsor. For more details, please visit nationalprayerbreakfast.org.uk

The Chair of Christians in Parliament is Gary Streeter MP, supported by a cross-party group of Vice-Chairs. For further details, see our People page.

Christians in Parliament is supported by Bible Society. The Christians in Parliament team is comprised of Revd Mark Harris (Chaplain to the APPG), Claire Newman (Senior Parliamentary Officer) and Alison Hill (Parliamentary Officer). You can find records of past APPG meetings here.
