Chapel & Grounds Are Closed


Wayfarers Chapel and the surrounding grounds of the property are presently closed due to the accelerated land movement in our local area. We understand this is devastating news to all who love this sacred space and we invite your prayers for the healing of this land. We will keep the public updated as to when we might be able to reopen the grounds as they become available. We appreciate your understanding of this incredibly challenging situation for everyone. We welcome you to join us for Sunday Worship Service at 10:15am, currently held at St Francis Episcopal Church (small sanctuary). 2200 Via Rosa ~ Palos Verdes Estates ~ 90274
PLEASE CONSIDER SUPPORTING OUR GOFUNDME BELOW Our plans to slow down this land movement include installing 1,000 linear feet of French Drain to safely divert water from the uphill side of the property into the ocean. There are several dewatering wells that have recently been activated, pumping out hundreds of thousands of gallons of water per day. We are also escalating this issue to activate resources at the Federal Level. If you would prefer to speak with someone personally about a donation, please contact our Executive Director, Rev. Dan Burchett, at (310) 377-1650 x206, or email him at danb@wayfarerschapel.org.

Imagine Your Special Day

Surrounded by the beauty of God’s creation, Wayfarers Chapel offers an inspiring setting for important passages-of-life celebrations, such as weddings, baptisms, and memorials.

The natural sanctuary of Palos Verdes sits nestled in a grove of towering redwoods on the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Designed by renowned organic architect Lloyd Wright, the stone and glass structure gives unique expression to the sacred space that welcomes all Wayfarers along life’s path.
