National Prayer Breakfast for Scotland

National Prayer Breakfast and National Day of Prayer

The live stream for the National Prayer Breakfast for Scotland 2021, will be broadcast from this page from 7.55am on Wednesday 2nd June, 2021. We're disappointed that we can't meet in person this year, because of the pandemic crisis, but — undaunted — we are carrying on with our event online.

The event is free to watch, however, you can optionally order a pre-made cooked breakfast to arrive at your home (the day before) that you can simply reheat in the morning and enjoy the experience of a meal, shared with others online. It costs £19, and you can order here.

In a world which is increasingly secular and alien to the Christian Gospel the National Prayer Breakfast for Scotland:

  • Is a public act of Christian witness to those in authority and influence in the nation, and to the nation generally, and a public affirmation of the power of prayer;
  • Is a source of encouragement to both believers and those of no faith, as well as an opportunity for networking across denominational groups;
  • In an increasingly individualistic society introduces and commends the value of national corporate prayer to all generations;
  • Calls the people of Scotland to turn to Jesus, believing the prayers of His people are the key.

Watch at a Remote Venue

In 2016, we launched the first ever live web stream of the National Prayer Breakfast. Sanctus Media were commissioned to film and broadcast the event as it happened from the Hilton Grosvenor Hotel in Edinburgh, and the result was astonishing...

Host a Remote Venue

[2021 update: regretfully we cannot encourage large groups gathering because of the ongoing pandemic crisis] Does your venue have the capacity and facility to run a remote venue for the NPBS live stream?

We are actively seeking and encouraging churches and organisations, who have the technical facilities to receive the live stream – as well as provide breakfast – to open their doors on the morning of the prayer breakfast for those who cannot join us in Edinburgh, yet still take part at a distance via the live stream..
