Emmanuel City Mission is a daytime sanctuary for the most vulnerable in our city. The centre is based on Christian values and behaviour with each individual being treated with dignity and respect.

The centre consists of regular activities, basic facilities and services to assist those with a variety of needs. The centre desires to not only meet the material needs, but the fullness of the individual, mind, body and soul. You will provide a warm presence to homeless visitors by having conversations with people experiencing homelessness providing providing assistance in meeting their needs, along with general activities associated with the centre.
