REVEREND GRAHAM LONG AM
Pastor and Wayside Mentor
Rev Graham Long joined Wayside in 2004 and has become an oracle of Kings Cross. He has been instrumental in creating a community of no ‘us and them’ at The Wayside Chapel – a place free of judgement where people can come to just ‘be’. Each day, Graham is a listening ear to those on and around the streets of Kings Cross.
From the social worker who became a postman, to the postman who became a pastor, Graham’s journey has led him to share in great joy and great sadness, both in his own life and through the lives of people who have fallen by the wayside. With a unique ability to connect with audiences ranging from a few people to a few thousand people, Graham captivates people with his personal stories and his deep insight about love, hate, power and the ‘self’. He challenges people to reflect on their contribution to society and he inspires people to live as if their last minute was to happen today.
