What people are saying about the breakfast
The Sydney Prayer Breakfast has had a long history in Sydney but had ceased to exist for several years. A group gathered to recreate this annual event for the CBD of Sydney. The first gathering of the newly constituted breakfast met in 2010 with around 400 people in attendance and it has continued to grow each year.
Many people choose to purchase a table of 10, however individual seats are also available.
The Sydney Prayer Breakfast leadership team are looking forward to hosting the 2022 year’s event in the Grand Ballroom at the stunning International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney. We are hoping for a gathering of almost 1500 people coming together to pray.
Speakers at the breakfasts have included leaders such as Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, Governor General David Hurley, Vice-Chancellor of Sydney University Michael Spence, the then Reserve Bank governor Glen Stevens and recently retired NSW Premier Mike Baird. In 2016 the new NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian was one of those who prayed at the breakfast. A testament to the importance of the breakfast is that these speakers, in most years, have continued to attend the breakfasts to be a part of this significant annual gathering.
The speaker for the 2022 event will be Mr Peter Gibbs. Mr Peter Gibbs or “Chicka” is a Gamillaroi man from the community of Weilmoringle on the banks of the Culgoa River in far west NSW. Peter has many years of experience in the community-development sector, with more than 30 years focusing on Western NSW. Mr Gibbs has been instrumental in the establishment of the IPROWD Program, a training model that develops Aboriginal people for a potential career in the NSW Police Force. The concept for this model developed after the tragic death in Police custody of his sister Fiona. IPROWD is now one of the most high profile programs in NSW.Meet Peter Gibbs
