Welcome to the Rotary Broadwater Chapel By The Sea, the only Chapel on the waterfront of the Gold Coast, now open for bookings to celebrate life’s special ceremonies.
The Rotary Broadwater Chapel By The Sea was formerly the Prayer Chapel of the original Gold Coast Hospital in Nerang Street, Southport. With the completion of the new Gold Coast University Hospital adjacent to Griffith University in 2013 and demolition of the original hospital imminent, the Rotary Club of Broadwater Southport Inc. were invited by Gold Coast Councillor Dawn Crichlow (O.A.M.) to save the Chapel and give it a new life.
The building was relocated to the Northern end of the Broadwater Parklands and has been renovated and extended by the Rotary Club of Broadwater Southport Inc. to increase capacity. It now offers internal seating for up to 40 people and a spacious deck overlooking the water front with room for 60 further guests.
The Chapel can be found in the stretch of Broadwater Parklands between the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre and the Smith Street traffic lights. Adjacent to the Chapel is a community centre where post ceremony activities could be hosted.
