National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Scheduled

“Serving the Common Good”

The National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast for 2022 has been scheduled for Tuesday, 5 July in Westminster Hall in the Houses of Parliament.  The event will commence at 07:30 and end by 09:00.

After two years online, we are excited to be back in person again this year. The Breakfast is a great opportunity to pray for our parliament, government and politics, to build relationships between church leaders and parliamentarians and to reflect upon the relevance of the Christian faith to our public life. 

Our theme this year is ‘Serving the Common Good’ and we are delighted that our main speaker will be Revd Les Isaac OBE, founder of Street Pastors and President of Ascension Trust.

After the main breakfast, we are delighted to offer a programme of seminars as well as a dedicated hybrid event for church leaders later in the morning. Please visit our website for more information on the programme.

A central aim of the event is for MPs and church leaders to attend together. Please invite your local MP to attend the breakfast with you. Due to high demand for spaces, we regret that at this stage, you can only buy a ticket if your MP confirms that they will attend with you. If you are awaiting a response from your MP, please visit the booking page to be added to the waiting list and we will follow up with the MP on your behalf. If your MP cannot attend, please visit the booking page to add your name to the waiting list.
