Welcome to Rough Edges, the home of St John’s community services.
Rough Edges is not just on-line, but also the name of the space at St John’s Anglican Church in Darlinghurst where we run an evening cafe, daytime creative programmes and offer practical assistance, sustainability counselling and a safe place to socialise. Our mission is to offer hospitality, assistance and education in order to forge community so that the marginalised people of Kings Cross can be blessed and a blessing to others.
Inside these pages you will find information about our programmes, including Urban Exposure – our social justice education program for high school kids, and the St John’s Legal Centre. You will also find practical information about how to join us in delivering these services, and how to become part of the Rough Edges/St John’s Community, and get a taste of what life is like in the world of Rough Edges.
