Wollongong Chapel

34 Belmore St, Wollongong NSW 2500

The H.Parsons’ Chapel in Wollongong is designed to be versatile and modern, allowing for large and small funeral services to be held comfortably. The foyer area of the Chapel provides a space for friends and family to gather and support each other.

Our Wollongong chapel features The Parson’s Personalised Scenery Projection Screen, allowing family and friends from anywhere in the world to interact and participate in the service. We are the only funeral service provider in the Illawarra to offer this feature. Our reception area is an ideal space for catered memorial services and the front portico offers a beautiful view of the mountains.

Your Local Chapel

With a design and décor that reflects the Illawarra community, our Wollongong chapel is designed with soft colours, open space, and modern facilities.

The chapel, foyer, and catering area are large and able to accommodate most sizes of funeral services. Our arrangement rooms are located on the other side of the building from the chapel and offer guests a quiet space to meet with our team and to sit prior to a funeral service.

Seating for 120

The chapel can comfortably seat 120 attendees, with additional standing and seating room available in the foyer and outside under the portico. With the extra standing and seating room, the chapel is able to accommodate most any size of funeral.

The main chapel can also be closed off, using the sliding glass doors and curtains, to create an intimate space for funeral services with less attendees.

Should you have questions about seating and numbers, please contact our team.

Personalised Scenery Projection Screen

When the Wollongong chapel was fully renovated in 2020, a set of high-quality projectors were installed in the chapel in order to create the Personalised Scenery Projection Screen (PSPS). The PSPS allows for families to completely personalise the chapel, by changing the entire wall of the chapel.

The PSPS is a fully digital feature, it can show images or video (though the image or video must meet the specifications of PSPS). Those unable to attend the funeral service can also join via Zoom. This allows them to be shown on the wall, to hear the funeral service, and even speak to those in attendance.

Parking

Free parking is available directly in front of the chapel, on the grass strip opposite the chapel, and on the street around the chapel. Paid parking is also available on Railway Parade and Young Street, and in the Rawson Street car park.

On the day of the funeral service, members of our staff will direct attendees to the best parking available, and will be available to offer advice.
