The Christchurch City Mission - We’re Here for You Christchurch
The work of the Christchurch City Mission Te Whare Mihana Ki Ōtautahi needs little introduction.
Launched in 1929, the Mission, a Division of Anglican Care, helps anyone with needs, regardless of circumstances, taking on the hardest cases with love and optimism. It improves the lives of 60,000 people a year through a wide range of services, providing emergency care and much more. Through education and training, they help struggling people re-join society and gain the self-esteem and happiness that comes from work, independence and permanent housing, believing everyone should have the opportunity of a second chance.
The Mission is constantly growing, providing a range of essential services, and the current redevelopment of its Hereford Street site will transform how they help people get back on track with their lives after crisis care.
The Mission values working as one team, embracing diversity and culture and encouraging you to be amazing, genuine and curious. No matter your position, everyone pitches in whenever and wherever.
