Heart Choir at the Cafe – Wednesday, 26 February 2020

Wayside Chapel is bringing the pub choir movement to the Heart Cafe, with our new monthly event “Heart Choir at the Cafe”, launching next Wednesday, 26 February!

If you haven’t heard of pub choir, it’s basically how it sounds – a group of people somewhere on a monthly basis, learn a song, and sing together as a choir. It’s loads of fun and guaranteed to make you feel good! You don’t need to book or audition, it’s just $5 at the door. You can reserve your place and invite your friends on our Facebook Event. If you have any questions, email [email protected] 

At the inaugural event, we are proud to announce we will be doing our rendition of Cher’s “Believe”, sung in the style that DMA’s performed for Triple J’s Like a Version. You can watch the Australian band perform it below (prepare to have chills!)

Art from the Heart – Friday, 6 March 2020 at Heart Cafe, Bondi Beach

Join us for ROUND TWO of Art from the Heart, our finger-painting workshop under the expert guidance of local artist and all-round legend Stephen Evans at Wayside Chapel’s social enterprise cafe Heart Cafe, Bondi Beach. We will lead you on a raucous, colourful and hilarious journey in which you’ll create not one, but two masterpieces painted with just your hands – not a brush to be seen. In this awesome class, you’ll learn some basic colour theory, painting composition and unique techniques on how to paint using just what you were born with- your hands and your Heart.

Enjoy watermelon and mint cocktails, canapes and prepare to rediscover that childhood passion for getting messy while learning a rad new skill to create art at home! You’ll be amazed at what you will create.

You will get:

Acrylic paint and canvas
Cocktails to get the creative juices flowing – but feel free to BYO of course!
Latex gloves if you don’t want to get too messy (but it is more fun that way

Optional BYO is $5 for corkage (per booking only needed).
