About The Wayside Chapel

The Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross is growing! A new funding agreement has seen The Wayside Chapel in Kings Cross extend its trading hours 9am – 11pm 7 days per week.

The Wayside Chapel has provided unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets of Kings Cross since 1964. The Wayside chapel expanded their footprint into Bondi in 2015. Today, under the banner of love over hate, The Wayside Chapel creates a community where there is no ‘us and them’ by breaking down the barriers of judgement and providing a safe place where people from all walks of life are welcome just to ‘be’ at both sites.

Our community services centre, youth space and outreach service, mental health program, community cafe and our Aboriginal project are all designed to ensure the most marginalised members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services. Our community development program reaches out to the wider community to ensure that The Wayside Chapel is a place for people from all walks of life.

About the Heart Café

The Wayside Heart Café is part of an ambitious and innovative pilot social enterprise venture launching in March 2018.
