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 2023 event in the Grand Ballroom at the spacious International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney. We are hoping for a gathering of 1700 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 2023 will be Amy Brown. Amy has had a 25-year career in law, finance, consulting and government. She is currently Chief Executive Officer of Investment NSW. Prior to this role, Amy was Deputy Secretary at the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Amy has also been a Partner of PwC Sydney, worked in infrastructure finance at NSW Treasury and Barclays Bank, and as an infrastructure lawyer at a number of top tier law firms.
"Absolutely superb. Congratulations to all concerned. The speech was exceptional. I will pray more fervently for Sydney and it’s people as a result"
