Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast Will Have Eastbourne Outpost

On Friday 25 June from 8.00–8.45 am the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast will take place online. Have you registered for the event yet? It’s free and open to all! Join with MPs, Peers and church leaders to pray for our Parliament, government and politics, taking time to reflect on the relevance of the Christian faith to public life.

‘Life Beyond Covid: A Renewed Hope’ is the theme of this year’s National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast which is once again being livestreamed on Friday 25 June from 8:00am-8:45am. It will be chaired by The Rt Hon Andrea Leadsom MP and we are delighted to welcome The Rt Revd Professor NT Wright who will give the keynote address. There will also be prayers led by parliamentarians and hymns with special guest singers.
The purpose of the event is to be a thought-provoking Christian witness to all parliamentarians, to inspire church leaders and parliamentarians about the relevance of the Christian faith to politics and to foster closer relationships between MPs and church leaders.

You may want to think about joining in with the local Eastbourne expression. Kings Church will host a screening of the London event and then we will pray with a local focus in mind. It is anticipated that local MP Caroline Ansell will be in attendance.

The Eastbourne event will follow the usual Covid guidelines with face coverings and social distancing. You are asked to pre-book for the Eastbourne version using this link.

But that’s not all, when you register to attend the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast, you’ll be invited to a selection of free webinars also happening throughout the day. The Bible Society webinar , Re-imagining Mission, takes place from 10.00–11.00 am and they would love you to come!

Alongside leading Christian theologians, thinkers and practitioners, we’ll be looking at the changes to the missional landscape wrought by the pandemic and addressing the question: how do we encourage one another in a prophetic re-imagining of mission?
