"Grow, prosper, focus on our core services and become the leader in transforming lives in our community."
Launceston City Mission seeks to provide assistance to all who have a physical, emotional or spiritual need, through a varied program of both social and evangelistic activities.
The mission works actively alongside churches and community groups to assist in its task of bringing friendship, care and compassion to those who feel socially isolated and spiritually out of touch with God.
We praise God for all the blessings He has bestowed upon the work of this mission since its inception in 1854. 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.
