Launceston City Mission


The Launceston City Mission, Launceston Town City Mission until 1889, was founded in 1854. Its brief was to spread the gospel to non-church goers in inner city working class communities. In 2014, the Launceston City Mission is still active.

Like the London City Mission, the Launceston City Missioners were Protestant but non-denominational. City Missioners saw working class communities as a mission field because they seemed ‘dark’ and ‘foreign’ to them. One of their concerns was to prevent alcoholism and prostitution.
