Dublin Central Mission Building.
There have been Methodists worshipping on the present Lower Abbey Street site since 1820. The first building was demolished and rebuilt at the beginning of the 20th century. The present building is used extensively by many self- help groups and has been a source of encouragement to many who have been struggling with addictions. In recent years plans have been drawn up for a complete refurbishment with a view to increasing the number of meeting rooms so that more self -help groups can be facilitated. Also it is hoped to install a lift into the building so that every room will be accessible. The estimated cost of this refurbishment is €3 million. This is a massive undertaking and all monies raised will go towards the installation of the lift. We work closely with the Dublin Simon Community with our homeless ministry.
Dublin Simon Community
Dublin Simon Community has been working since 1969 to combat homelessness in Dublin. Founded in 1969 by a group of students from Trinity and UCD, Dublin Simon Community has developed since those days to work with over 2,000 people every year. We help the most vulnerable in our society to break the vicious cycle of homelessness by empowering them to take control of their lives with the purpose of finding and maintaining a place they can call home. For many this starts with a cup of soup, a friendly face and a safe and warm space to spend the night.
