Our vision

"Grow, prosper, focus on our core services and become the leader in transforming lives in our community."


Our mission

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.


Our values

to guide choice and behaviour

in all of our service activities

Caring and sharing in Jesus' name

FAITH - We trust in God who provides us with purpose, meaning and direction.  We have confidence that actions rooted in good character will yield the best outcome, even when we cannot see how.

JUSTICE – We take personal responsibility to uphold what is pure, right and true.

COMPASSION – We invest whatever is necessary to heal the hurts of others.

GENEROSITY – We carefully manage our resources so we can freely give to those in need.

VIRTUE – We strive for moral excellence as we consistently do what is right.

DEPENDABILITY – We fulfil what we consent to do, even if it means unexpected sacrifice.

ENTHUSIASM – We express joy in our work as we give it our best effort.






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.
