Prahran Mission on YouTube
The Prahran Mission rooftop played host to this sell-out event in November 2011. With over 150 people in attendance, the night proved that everything old is new again. The no-fuss ambience was complimented by live tunes, a BBQ good enough to ask for seconds and a stellar Melbourne sunset.
People shopped, socialized, drank (Doss out of brown paper bags, of course) and charged their beers to reinvention and lending a helping hand. The urban skyline was the perfect contrast to cosmopolitan shoppers sharpening their hunter-gatherer skills amid the racks of vintage treasures. The Op Shop Party left its mark on the Melbourne charity scene as an original and successful mix of eclectic people, music and clothing.

Our Emergency Relief Program is in urgent need of food vouchers and food items.
Each year Prahran Mssion distributes thousands of dollars worth of food and food vouchers to people in need. Food vouchers allow individuals to provide their families with fresh essentials such as milk, bread and fresh vegetables.
Currently our stocks are extremely low and we need your help; you can pre-purchase $30 or $60 charity food vouchers from the service counter of your local Woolworths or Coles and post to Prahran Mission, PO Box 68, PRAHRAN 3181 or drop off during business hours at 211 Chapel Street.
We are also very glad to accept blankets and sleeping bags, especially during the cold winter months.
