About The Wayside Chapel

Wayside Chapel has provided unconditional love, care and support for people on and around the streets of Kings Cross since 1964.

Today, under the banner of love over hate, 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’.

Wayside Chapel draws people out of social isolation and invites them into the healing place of community. People marginalised by homelessness, mental health issues and substance abuse can turn to Wayside for compassion, tolerance and support.

Our community services centres in both Kings Cross and Bondi, mental health program, twilight team, two community cafes and our Aboriginal Program are all designed to ensure the most disadvantaged members of our community have access to essential health, welfare, social and recreational services.

Each year, thousands of people visit Wayside for assistance in gaining equitable access to essential health, welfare and related services.

In an average week, Wayside provided, amongst other services, 497 showers, 352 changes of clothing, 303 hours of support to people with a long-term mental health issue, and 49 social and recreational activities for the whole community to participate in. People purchased over 1,459 low cost items in our café, and 296 members of the community visited Wayside to learn more about our work.

Overall, everyone who came in seeking assistance or even just stopped by for a chat were welcomed into a place where they can find company and acceptance.
