About Prayer Breakfast

The National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast is an annual recognition of the contribution that Christianity makes to the national life of the UK. It is held in Westminster Hall in the Houses of Parliament with the kind permission of Black Rod, the Speaker and the Lord Speaker.

Every year, over 700 MPs, Peers and church leaders gather together to pray for our Parliament, government and politics, to build relationships between church leaders and their local MPs, and to reflect upon the relevance of the Christian faith to our public life.

In 2019, the Prayer Breakfast was chaired by Baroness Sherlock and took place on Tuesday 2nd July 2019. Our main speaker was The Bishop of London, The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Dame Sarah Mullally DBE, who addressed the theme of ‘Building unity in a world of difference’.
