More than 170 MPs, including Prime Minister Theresa May, cabinet members, peers, ambassadors and church leaders, gathered for a special prayer breakfast.

Held in Westminster Hall in the Palace of Westminster, on 19 June, the 2018 National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast was addressed by Rev. Dr Tim Keller, who spoke on the topic ‘What can Christianity offer our society in the 21st century’.

He urged Christians not to lose their saltiness, referencing Matthew 5:13. He said, ‘Christians, you’re only going to be of benefit to society if you stay different, if you don’t become like the society: self-actualising; if you stay self-sacrificers and self-givers’.

Dr Keller also called for the wider British society to respect Christians’ difference, in order to get the best that Christians have to offer to society.
