Lots of churches partner with Glasgow City Mission, enabling our minsitry and adding real value to the church too. We would love your church to also get invovled with our work, and with tackling poverty in your local community.
Together we can bring God's love to men, women and families who are marginalised or experiencing poverty, and enable people to fulil their God-given potential.
There are lots of ways to learn more about our work, and to get involved as a congregation.
Harvest is a time when we give thanks to God for His Goodness throughout the year, and share with others who are in need. Could you share your lunch with someone in Glasgow this Harvest?
Would your church consider holding a Harvest offering this year, or asking your congregation to text 'MEAL40 £5" to 70070 to donate £5 - that would enable someone battling homelessness or lonlieness to enjoy a wholesome lunch at Glasgow City Mission. Not only are they nourished physically, but also spiritually as they discover what God's love looks like.
We have group and individual volunteering roles available. A group from your church could help with befriending, leading a Bible study, or delivering an Alpha or a Christianity Explored course. All of our volunteers come from local churches. As the volunteers spend time with those we serve, it can have a significant impact on their own faith journey, which in turn can impact on their church family.
Invite us to your church
A member of our team can come to speak to your church about what we do and the difference it makes – at your Sunday service or at a mid-week meeting. Contact the office to arrange a time.
Bring your church to visit
Come and see first-hand some of the work we do. Contact the office to arrange a tour.
Some of our clients are looking for work. Is your church looking for a cleaner, maintenance person, or a coffee shop assistant? Paid or voluntary positions would both be of value. Contact us if you’d like to discuss this further.
As well as inspiring churches to get involved in our work here at Glasgow City Mission, we also want to equip local congregations to impact their own communities. Churches are critical in sharing the love of God with those in their local communities who are in need.
If you are a church leader and would be interested in discussing this further, please get in touch. We’d love to meet up to talk through how we could partner with you.
