The Christian contribution to national life

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

Parliament holds a National Prayer Breakfast as a recognition of the contribution that Christianity makes to the national life of the UK. This year’s Breakfast took place on Tuesday 17th June in Westminster Hall. The theme was ’Global Christianity in the 21st Century’ and the main speaker was the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, with Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP as the chair.

After breakfast there were a number of prayers and readings before the Archbishop’s address. He spoke of his experiences travelling around the world and called for good and loving disagreements, comparing fellow Christians to family members that we must love even when we disagree. He went on to say that he had recently met the Pope and agreed with him that the global 21st century church must be about the three Ps: prayer, peace and poverty.

The event always brings together a large number of people and after the breakfast there was a range of seminars on offer. These ranged from discussing issues such as the role of the Bible in the world, the work of Christian Aid, and global social cohesion.

Meg said:

"The National Prayer Breakfast is a wonderful event with Westminster Hall providing a beautiful setting for the music and singing. Justin Welby set out the challenges in an amusing and compelling way. I was privileged to have taken part."
