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. The past two years we have filled the largest ballroom in the CBD, unfortunately selling out already several weeks in advance.
The Sydney Prayer Breakfast leadership team are looking forward to moving to the recently opened ballroom in the stunning Sydney Convention Centre. The ballroom has double the capacity of last year’s venue! This year the team are hoping for a gathering of 1500 people.
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 date and venue for the 2018 breakfast is
Wednesday 30 May 2018
Grand Ballroom, International Convention Centre
"Absolutely superb. Congratulations to all concerned. The RBA Governor’s speech was exceptional. I will pray more fervently for Sydney and it’s people as a result"
