The Church City Mission is one of the largest humanitarian faith-based organisations in Norway. The Church City Mission is a diaconal foundation established in Kristiania (Oslo) in 1855.
The Church City Mission is present in the form of independent foundations established in most major cities in Norway: Oslo, Tromsø, Bodø, Trondheim, Bergen, Stavanger, Ålesund, Kristiansand, Tønsberg, Drammen and Fredrikstad.
The head office of The Church City Mission in Oslo is situated at Tollbugata 3, in the city center.
The Church City Mission is also involved in other cities, such as in Haugesund, Stord, Odda, Kragerø, Arendal, Kongsberg, Lillestrøm, Moss, Sarpsborg and Halden.
The Church City Mission’s vision is that people in the city shall experience respect, justice and care.
Individuals are of equal worth yet different. We wish to work for a society where every person is met with respect and an expectation: respect for his/her individuality and an expectation of what that individual can do.
No one is just what we can see
In all its work, the Church City Mission shall seek to obtain and provide resources and opportunities, and to help foster and trigger courage and the ability to master one’s own situation.
Detect, relieve, change
The Church City Mission’s duties are comprehensive and include detecting and relieving violations, injustice and distress, and by helping to remove the causes of injustice.
We perceive our mission and our entire operation as being part of the church’s diaconal work in the metropolis.
