Our History

The Wellington City Mission has been working for the people of Wellington since 1904.

As Wellington society has changed, so has the work of The Mission.  The Mission's evolution over this time has been greatly influenced by the changing needs of the less fortunate citizens of the Wellington area.  Resources have always been limited but the needs of the day have directed the work.   Trustees, missioners, staff, volunteers, donors and sponsors have all made great contributions to the lives of people needing help.

The "time-line" on the right illustrates just some of the ways in which The Mission has responded and supported individuals and groups in the Greater Wellington community over the last century.
