The Parliamentary Christian Fellowship (PCF) is an interdenominational group of Members and Senators of Federal Parliament who seek to live out their faith while serving the Australian public through their roles in Parliament.
The PCF hosts a number of events throughout the year, some of which are open to members of the public. Australia’s National Prayer Breakfast is generally held on a Sunday evening-Monday morning once a year in Parliament House, Canberra. More information may be found at the National Prayer Breakfast web site.
At the beginning of each Parliamentary year and at the beginning of each new Parliament, the PCF coordinates, with the Australian Capital Territory Churches Council, an ecumenical service of worship in one of Canberra’s larger church buildings. The service to commence the 2019 Parliamentary year was held at 7.30 am on Tuesday 12 February at St Paul’s Anglican Church, Manuka. The preacher was The Rev’d Dr Ockert Meyer of Canberra Central Uniting Parish.
