Join us for our open day with tea and tours, showcasing our diverse stories.
Saturday 16 September
11am to 5pm
20 Crimea Street
Hear stories from men and women we've worked with since 1826. Share your own stories. Tour our building and experience our Urban cafe. This is part of the Glasgow Doors Open Days Festival.
This is a free event and there's no need to book.
We'll be creatively showcasing the stories of the men and women affected by poverty and homelessness that we've worked with over the years. Their diverse stories are an important part of our heritage, although often overlooked. Tour our purpose built five-storey building and experience the Urban cafe space. We have a growing work with asylum seekers and there will be the chance to hear their stories. You are welcome to tour our building at your own pace, or come and join one of our guided tours. Hospitality is a key part of our work, and refreshments will be served throughout the day.
We know that many of you will have connections with Glasgow City Mission, whether you used to volunteer here, or maybe a grandparent was a staff member or you or a relative have used our services. Please come and share your stories with us – there will be opportunities during the day to do this.
There will be a treasure hunt and arts activities for children.
