Compass - New Noffs, The
The story of Ted Noffs, a maverick Methodist minister, whose groundbreaking work with the young and destitute in 1960s Australia lives on through his son and grandsons. But with one major difference - the Christian message is no longer part of the mission.
Ted Noffs founded The Wayside Chapel in 1964 in the heart of Sydney’s red light district of Kings Cross establishing, for first time, drug referral and rehabilitation centres as well as helping the city’s poor and needy. Over time he developed the “Family of Humanity” a belief that encompassed every faith, and put him on a collision course with his own church. In the decades since Ted’s untimely death his oldest son, Wesley, and now his grandsons, Rupert and Matt, have all given up successful careers to run the ‘family business’, the Ted Noffs Foundation, forging new ways of reaching out to today’s youth.
