Mission Statement

Sharing the good news about Jesus in word and deed to needy people in the Leeds Metropolitan Area. Helping local churches to be beacons of hope and light in their communities

Leeds City Mission has worked in the city over 180 years and is its oldest interdenominational Christian agency. Today it continues its work seeking to be relevant to the spiritual, social, and physical needs of a metropolitan area which has the second largest economy outside of London. In a city of great contrasts and widening gap between rich and poor, it seeks to address the needs of people. It continues to minister to the poor and marginalised – bringing the good news of the gospel,living hope and practical help.

The Lighthouse: Leeds City Mission has had to curtail many of its activities during the COVID-19 pandemic.  Our work is people-focussed and we have been impacted by the lockdown restrictions.  We are keeping the situation under review and will resume activities following government advice and the lifting of lockdown restrictions.  We anticipate a significant increase in our workload in the marginalised communities where we operate and your prayers and support for this will be appreciated.  We hope to issue a summer issue of the LCM Newsletter ‘Life4Leeds’ with a full update of news and developments.
