2020 Programme

National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast 2020 Online

Hope and peace in a time of fear and suffering

The National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast 2020 Online will be livestreamed on Tuesday 30 June from 8.30-9.00am. The chair of the breakfast this year is Marsha de Cordova MP. Our main speaker will be the Bishop of Kensington, the Rt Revd Dr Graham Tomlin who will address the theme of ‘Hope and peace in a time of fear and suffering’.

Further details will be announced in due course.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, we want to bring together parliamentarians, church leaders and Christians from across the UK to pray for our country, the NHS and other key workers, Parliament and the Government, as well as reflect upon the message of hope, peace and loving service that the Christian faith brings to our society in this moment.

Following the event, our principal sponsor and partner Bible Society will be hosting a webinar for church leaders from 10.00-11.00am, titled “Mission during lockdown and beyond”. Comprising presentations, interviews, prayer and worship, those in church leadership roles are very welcome to attend this live event. The webinar is free to attend, but you must register to gain access via the registration form for the main event.
