Welcome to Eastbourne Civic Prayer Breakfast 2024
There has been a National Prayer Breakfast in the Houses of Parliament for some years involving those in positions of leadership, and from this has grown a network of Breakfasts across the nation. The Eastbourne Breakfast grew out of the East Sussex Breakfast in the year 2000.
The Breakfast invites leaders from all walks of life in our town to meet, network, and hear how the Christian Faith can enrich our communities.
A welcome from the Chair and a greeting from the
Mayor Cllr. Candy Vaughan
