What is the Auckland Prayer Breakfast?

The Auckland Prayer Breakfast is part of a growing, global city prayer breakfast movement and is the first of its kind in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Organised by the Auckland Church Leaders Meeting and New Zealand Christian Network since 2016, this event continues to grow with the support of a commited organising committee, oversight group and key sponsors.

Who should attend?

Any person who desires to pray for the different communities that come together in the Auckland area such as business (the professions), politics, the arts and those in need.

We believe that you will be greatly encouraged in your faith by participating in the breakfast.

It’s good to pray at all times and also alone, but there is a place for corporate prayer on occasions such as this.

It is a privilege we should not underestimate, to be able to freely gather in this country and to call on our Heavenly Father in prayer.

At the breakfast, you will make new friends meeting people from all walks of life including business people, educators, church leaders and new believers.

You will learn of opportunities to keep connected in the city and to connect others to Christ.
