Auckland Prayer Breakfast is an annual event, drawing people from all over Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau together in unity to pray for the city. You’re invited!

A Call to Pray for Auckland

Auckland Prayer Breakfast started in 2016 and is firmly established as a highlight of the Auckland community calendar. The event brings together like-minded people from all ages, ethnicities, and church denominations in unity, with special guests including the Mayor of Auckland. Participants come with a desire to pray for the peace & prosperity of Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau, worship God together, and enjoy connecting with one another.

Auckland Prayer Breakfast is hosted by Auckland Church Leaders & the New Zealand Christian Network, and supported by a significant number of churches & para-church organisations across the city.

Why should you attend?

Unity

Together we express our unity in Christ, be a part of the body of Christ in Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau, make new friends, and reconnect with existing friends

Compassion

Your heart is for Auckland / Tāmaki Makaurau, for different communities, for those in need, for our civic leaders, for our health & wellbeing, for the beautiful diversity of the city

Freedom

It is good to pray at all times and alone, yet there is also a place for corporate prayer. It’s a privilege to gather freely in Aotearoa, and to call on our Heavenly Father in prayer

Frequently Asked Questions

How can we have a prayer breakfast on Zoom?

The main purpose of the prayer breakfast is to gather people to pray –  Zoom is simply the ‘venue’. We will follow a similar format to previous years but, instead of praying with others around the table, you’ll do so in, what Zoom calls, ‘breakout rooms’.

As for breakfast, it’s on you! After the meeting officially closes, we will open more breakout rooms for people to meet up online over breakfast.

Think of this as a large, online prayer Meetup. 

Can I register multiple people?

Not really… Every registration requires a unique email. You can get around this by sitting beside each other on the sofa though!

Does it cost anything?

No, it’s absolutely free, but you do have to register to get the Zoom link. It will be sent out prior to the event after we know how many meeting links we need to set up to meet the demand.

What will we be praying for?

The four prayer topics will be important ones for our city:

  • Church unity & evangelism
  • Poverty
  • Local & central government
  • Mental health & wellbeing

What else will happen during the Breakfast?

We’ll worship together, hear from Mayor Phil Goff, and enjoy plenty of time to connect with new & old friends in the Zoom breakout rooms.

We want to encourage people to make connections. So, make sure you complete the survey questions as part of your registration. We’ll use your answers to help assign you to a breakout room.

Will it also be live-streamed?

We’re working on it. Keep an eye out for details but joining in on Zoom gives you the opportunity to actually meet and pray with other people.
