Join us in the fight against homelessness,

hunger and need. Please give generously to

the City Mission Winter Appeal 2014


During the winter months of June last year our City Mission Family Services case workers assisted just under 240 people to put some food in their pantry, clothes on their back or pay a bill that, if not paid, would see them without adequate accommodation during the winter months.  Emergency Relief workers during that winter month helped 35 people keep their power on, provided food to 118 and supplied household items and furniture to 25 people valued in excess of $4,000. 

Please help us continue our long history of making lives better by making your gift to the City Mission Winter Appeal.

2014 marks our 160th year of caring for people who are lonley, frightened and have little hope of a bright future, it's encouraging to know that the communities of North West Tasmania are behind us in our cause.

The winter months bring increased anxiety to many families who constantly struggle to make ends meet. Demands on our services increase as those people discover that there is simply not enough to go around. Every day, we help 150 people or mor in one way or another through our varied range of support services from emergency relief to long term supported accomodation.


We are thankful to Tas Gas for their financial support towards the costs of the 2014 Winter Appeal.




As we celebrate 2014 as our 160th year we praise God for all the blessings He has bestowed upon the work of this mission since its inception all those years ago. Today The Mission continues to carry out its primary motive of “Caring and Sharing in Jesus’ name” through providing a vast array of services to people needing help.  We believe that God has preserved this Mission for His purposes; that is to be a bridge of connection between the poor, the lonely, the abused and the addicted between themselves and their creator.


Offering parcels of food, some financial assistance, a way to recovery from an addiction or a place to call home is only part of our mission.  We do all this to somehow demonstrate God’s love in practical ways and show that even though our physical, emotional and social needs can be met by others, there is only one person who can quench our spiritual hunger; that is the Lord, Jesus Christ.
