The Tiny Chapel was inspired by the numerous ones I saw by the highways when I lived in USA in the Mid-West in the late 1970s. I promised my self that, if I could, I would build one here in Australia. In Missouri and Kansas they were white wooden miniatures that folks far from home could pop in and stay a while…..be thankful, be blessed and be happy. As an Australian far from home studying in St Louis, Missouri, I was one of those folk.

Our Tiny Chapel is brick. It’s a place for anyone to visit and connect with God….whoever or whatever you may believe him to be. It’s a place to meditate. It’s a place of peace and love. It’s a place of reflection and mindfulness. Above all, it is a place of reverence in one of the most beautiful parts of New South Wales.

It was built by Rob Wade, a retired builder, who, along with my husband Ross Grassick, Vicky Wilson and I, deliberated each angle, the type of material, the colours and how the final result must be. Like me, Rob had always wanted to build a church.

Every element of The Tiny Chapel has its own story to tell.
