In response to COVID-19, chapel services will be moving online. For the full statement of Wayside Chapel’s response, click here. 

Wayside’s chapels, in Kings Cross and Bondi, offer a place to celebrate, to come together and to worship.


There are few more radical examples of community than those that are encountered in our little gatherings on Sunday mornings in Kings Cross, and Sunday mornings and afternoons in Bondi.  Our services are attended by people of all walks of life. Many of the barriers that divide people are fairly effectively dissolved for a time.

We are fairly free of much of the baggage of the church and yet we are a church. We are a people who don’t have all the answers, and we find our lack of answers rather liberating. We enjoy each other’s company and we remind each other that all of religion is satisfied when love is lived in community.  In Kings Cross, Eucharist is celebrated every week using stale old Wayside bread. It makes the point that the Divine is usually found in the least likely places and that humanity flourishes at its most beautiful when it is mindful of its own frailty.  In much the same spirit, Eucharist is celebrated monthly in Bondi.
