MPs and Peers across the country join National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast with local churches

by Cara Bentley

Parliamentarians from across the political spectrum have joined the National Parliamentary Prayer breakfast from their homes or local churches, to celebrate the work that Christians do in society and encourage engagement between churches and politicians. 

The event was hosted by Andrea Leadsom MP, a former Conservative leadership candidate, and she was joined live in Westminster Hall by the chaplain to the speaker of the House of Commons, Rev Canon Tricia Hilllas, Lord Paul Boateng and Canon Pat Browne, the Roman Catholic Duty Priest to Parliament. 

 

 

 

 

Many politicians watched online from churches across the country with local Christians, such as at St Thomas' Church in Kendall and Holy Trinity Clapham in London. 

 

 

 

 

Prayers were led live by parliamentarians Taiwo Owatemi, Dr Lisa Cameron, Tim Farron and Lord David Alton and Professor NT Wright gave a talk on life beyond Covid - focusing on lament and forgiving those who have made mistakes. 

It also featured messages from the House of Commons speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle , Ruth Jones MP and vaccines minister Nadhim Zahawi, who thanked churches for the "incredible work you are all doing".

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
