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

About the opportunities

Awayside Days

Our Corporate Group Volunteering Program, otherwise known as ‘Awayside Days’ allows a team of around ten people to spend a day in Kings Cross learning about life on the streets and lending a helping hand to the most vulnerable people in our community.

The experience delivers the whole package – a memorable team building opportunity near the heart of the CBD, the chance to experience life at Wayside, and to cook and serve a lovingly-prepared community lunch.

Participants leave with a richer understanding of homelessness, a different perspective of the people they pass in the street, and a whole lot of love.

9:30am – Welcome and introduction to Wayside services
11am – Informational walking tour through Kings Cross and Woolloomooloo with first hand perspectives and stories of life on the street
11.45am – Prepare a two-course meal in Wayside’s commercial kitchen
1pm – Serve and enjoy lunch in the company of Wayside visitors
2pm – Lunch pack down and clean up
2.30pm – Team debrief
3pm – Leave Wayside

The cost is $2,500 plus GST which covers the full cost of the day plus contributes to the running costs of Wayside’s Café which serves over 85,000 items each year.

Community Dinners

We are also pleased to announce our new Community Dinner package for corporate groups, which offers teams the chance to prepare a two-course evening meal to share with the Wayside community. This may be particularly suitable for those who are unable to commit to our Awayside Days during business hours.
