The National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast is enabled to take place through the generosity of sponsors who support its work and vision. Sponsors for the 2013 event include:
Bible Society is the principal sponsor of the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast and was established in 1804 to promote the circulation and use of the Scriptures. The Society's Patron is HM The Queen and its President is Rt Revd & Rt Hon Richard Chartres, the Bishop of London. We make Scriptures available where there are none. We work to help the church engage with the Bible more effectively. And we endeavour - through the arts, education, media and politics - to demonstrate the Bible's credibility in contemporary culture. In short, our mission is to offer the Bible to the world. Please join us in this mission: biblesociety.org.uk.
