What We Do

Transforming Lives in Jesus' Name

Our Why

Launceston City Mission seeks to provide assistance to all who have a physical, emotional, social 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.

City Mission exists to meet community and people's need and to demonstrate God's love in action; Caring and Sharing in Jesus' Name!

Our vision is to be effective in:

  • Transforming Lives
  • Transforming Families
  • Transforming Communities
  • Transforming Futures

We're inspired and motivated by the life, teaching and example of Jesus. It informs our inclusive ethos and drives our passionate belief that each human being is equally important, has intrinsic God-given worth and is uniquely valuable.
