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 bring friendship, care and compassion to those who feel socially isolated. For almost 160 years the Launceston City Mission has been a guide to the lost, a provider for the poor and a friend to the lonely; doing it all in Jesus’ name.

Compassion believes in long-term development. We work with kids from the womb to the workforce. Compassion child sponsorship works by giving children emotional support, health care, education, and the opportunity to discover Jesus’ love. Sponsorship gives children a brighter future so they, and their future children, can live free from poverty. You or Your church can join a global ministry working to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.
The Salvation Army lives out its mission through diverse, unified expressions across Australia. We achieve our goals through a culture of courageous stewardship; committed to leadership and delivering innovative and progressive services within a financially sustainable framework.

•Hope for people who are homeless or escaping violence.
•Hope for people trapped in addiction or battling mental illness.
•Hope for people affected by disasters or financial troubles.
•Hope for anyone feeling hopeless.
Together that’s what we are – a group of people united by faith and motivated by a message of hope.
