Christmas Day Lunch and Street Party in Kings Cross and Bondi Beach

Once again, Wayside Chapel will host two free Christmas celebrations, providing love and support for Sydney’s homeless community on Christmas Day. Join us at our Christmas Day Lunch and Street Party as we shut down Hughes Street, Potts Point for Wayside Chapel’s largest community celebration of the year, including free Christmas lunch served with all the trimmings, entertainment and dancing on the street. Or you can join us for a festive celebration in Bondi Beach with a Christmas Day BBQ, with live entertainment right on the sands of Bondi Beach.

More details on both events to come. 

This Christmas, Donate a Plate and provide a delicious meal for a person experiencing homelessness on Christmas Day. Wayside Chapel needs to raise $400,000 before Christmas to make sure anyone in crisis or experiencing homelessness is fed and supported during what can be a lonely and difficult time of year. Funds raised will go towards our Christmas Day Street Party and towards the cost of opening our programs and services throughout January so that no-one is left out.

Long Walk Home – Friday, 29 November

**Registrations for Long Walk Home 2019 are now open!**

Long Walk Home is a 28km fundraising walk from Parramatta to Kings Cross, raising money to support Wayside Chapel and people experiencing homelessness.

Did you know in an average week, a person sleeping rough walks a distance of 28km looking for a place to sleep? Tonight as you head home, over 116,000 people won’t have a place to call home. Some will be wandering through the city, looking for a place to rest their head for the night, desperate for a safe space or shelter. A park bench is sometimes the only option.

Take steps to help people experiencing homelessness with Long Walk Home.

Long Walk Home is proudly supported by NRMA Insurance.
