National Prayer Breakfast and National Day of Prayer

The live stream for the National Prayer Breakfast for Scotland 2021, was broadcast on Wednesday 2nd June, 2021. We're disappointed that we couldn't meet in person this year, because of the pandemic crisis, but — undaunted — we carried on with our event online. [Download programme]

Keynote Speaker

Mo TimboThis year’s keynote speaker was Pastor Mo Timbo, who shared a powerful message of the restoration power of Jesus, demonstrated in his life as he went from a gang member carrying knives on the streets of Peckham, East London to an anti-knife crime campaigner in Hull.

Musical Contribution

Steph MacleodWe are excited to say that the musical contribution was lead by Steph Macleod. He is a singer songwriter and worship leader based in Scotland, who also has a compelling story of the change Jesus can bring in someone’s life. Steph shares the hope he found in Jesus Christ through word and song all over the world, and draws inspiration from his lived experiences and freedom from homelessness and addiction.

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?
