Caring for people, Caring for Community

Methodist Social Services (MSS) grew out of the local Wesley parish, and officially opened 55 years ago, in 1963.

Since that time MSS has evolved to meet the changing needs of our community.

Our centre is at 663 Main Street, Palmerston North.  Our postal address is PO Box 1887, Palmerston North.

Our office is contactable Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between the hours of 9am and 3pm on  06 3500307.  Evening appointments may be available on Tuesdays.

Today we offer family, couples, children’s and individual counselling services, social work support, as well as emergency food support (foodbank).  We also have a team of tutors running whanau / family based education programmes, and the Ministry of Justice programme Parenting Through Separation.

Our social work, whanau / family based education programmes and social work support services are provided FREE to community.  Our counselling is offered at ‘low cost’.

We work closely with other agencies, and if we are unable to best meet your needs we will look to refer you to the agency who can.

Information about our sister organisation Goodwill and their two op shops is included in the tab attached to this page.  Their fantastic bargain-friendly op shops help us to work with community.
