Gloucester City Mission: Eighteen Years Old
Updated: Jul 18, 2021
Yesterday marked eighteen years since the founding of Gloucester City Mission by Golden Valley Church's Mike Curtis.
Gloucester City Mission (GCM) supports the homeless, those living in temporary accommodation, sofa surfers and those in need of support with clothing, toiletries, food or advice.
In April of this year they opened Restore. This is a 'shop' where clients can come to get clothes, shoes, toiletries and other emergency provisions.
On July 1st 2003 Gloucester City Mission started as just Mike Curtis and his rucksack. Over the past eighteen years it has developed into a much larger organisation. Mike, himself, is now chaplain for the Mission.
