Prayer in the city’s heart

The Tasmanian Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast brings together like-minded people from across Tasmania to pray for our State, our leaders, parliamentarians, businesses, schools, communities, and community organisations; our families, youth, and children. In the name of Jesus, we ask God to grant us the will and wisdom, the creativity and strength we need to care well for each other and to see Tasmania flourish in every dimension. Please join us for this special moment of unity and humility.

Unique networking moment

Rarely does such a cross section of leaders from government, business, community, education, media, and the church gather in one place to express their thanks to God for the past and ask His blessing on the future. So once a year at the Parliamentary Breakfast we provide a special time to acknowledge one another, to connect with each other, and to be encouraged together.

Speakers with integrity

Each year, a recognised public figure who has made a significant professional and leadership contribution is a guest speaker at the breakfast. By sharing something of the story of their lives, each speaker brings something unique of the impact of their upbringing, experience and faith has had on their life and leadership.
