Venue Hire and Catering


Are you looking for a unique location to hold your next event? The Wayside Chapel offers a wide variety of options for all types of events, including everything from a cocktail party for 100 people in our hall to a corporate team-building day with a break for lunch on our rooftop garden.

It’s not just the convenient location of Potts Point, the value for money and the variety of spaces that make holding an event at Wayside special, it’s also the fact that all money raised goes back to Wayside and opportunities are provided for visitors to learn catering skills.

All of our events are catered by people who are disadvantaged and face issues relating mental health and homelessness. By catering for events, they learn new skills, work together to solve problems and they have a great time. If people are serious about getting into the workforce, they can use the skills and experience gained at Wayside to help get a foot in the door.
