Newcastle has a heritage of church and civic leaders coming together to pray for the welfare of the city.
In 1990 after the Newcastle earthquake (1989), the city leaders along with people from churches across the region gathered at the West Leagues Club to pray. In 2009 after a break in gathering a group of Newcastle pastors approached the then Lord Mayor Cr John Tate about again hosting an annual prayer breakfast. He agreed and together they initiated an annual event that has been hosted by Lord Mayor Cr John Tate 2009/2012, Lord Mayor Cr Jeff McCloy in 2013/2014 and presently Lord Mayor Cr Nuatali Nelmes.
The commitment of so many to gather together reflects the willing ability of civic, church, business and community leadership to journey together in a God honouring way! During this journey through the generosity of sponsors and those that have gathered many thousands of dollars have been given to charities that represent a small portion of the vast and impressive charitable work that is done throughout our region.
In 2020 due to extraordinary circumstances we gathered via webinar, Rhema 99.7 and Kingdomworks Facebook Live. In 2021 we are pleased to be able to invite you to return in person to gather and pray for our city.
Ticket price includes a hot breakfast, tea coffee and juice. www.regionalprayer.org.au
The proceeds of this event are given to a local Newcastle charity. Since 2009, twelve charities have benefited from a total of $100,860.
