City of Ryde Prayer Breakfast


The City of Ryde Prayer Breakfast has been held since 1992 and is a time to come together as one to promote goodwill throughout the community through prayer.

The 2022 City of Ryde Prayer Breakfast was held on Friday 24 June at a new location Ryde Eastwood Leagues Club. 

This year our guest speaker was be Kara Martin speaking on the topic of “Integrating faith and work in Ryde.

From the beginning, people have enjoyed the rich lands and waterways of Ryde, which produced edible plants and fish. Over the years Ryde changed from a food bowl for our first nations people and early settlers, to a hub for small industry. However, the future is startling: Macquarie Park will soon become the 4th largest business district in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In this talk, author and lecturer Kara Martin will share about the future of work, and what opportunities exist for faith communities in Ryde.
