For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’
(Matthew 25:35-36 ESV)

The Matthew 25 Mission is a community based group assisting people in need and offers practical help and support to anyone, regardless of race, religion or gender.
We provide a listening ear and sympathetic pastoral care with information and advice as well as provision of food, clothing and basic necessities.
Volunteers at the Matthew 25 Mission aims to support people trying to rebuild broken lives, especially those with life-threatening addiction, loneliness, bereavement, unemployment, homelessness, offending and more.
We can direct people to specialist agencies while maintaining links of friendship and compassion and a safety net to help anyone who might be marginalised by society.
We encourage, through self-enabling, a clear direction for each person or family. Using a range of activities people willing to participate and show commitment are able to restore motivation and take positive steps forward.
Over the last 17 years the project (formerly known as Oasis) has helped many to find their way back into society again.
