Caring for people, Caring for Community

Methodist Social Services (MSS) grew out of the local Wesley parish, and officially opened 54 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 Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between the hours of 9 and 4.30 on  06 3500307.  Evening appointments may be available on Thursdays. We are closed from 3 pm on Friday the 23rd of December 2016 until Tuesday the 10th of January 2017. Counselling services re-commence on Tuesday the 17th of January 2017.

Today we offer family, couples, children’s and individual counselling services.  We also offer a social work support and advocacy service, as well as operating a foodbank for community and clients.  We also have a team of tutors running whanau / family based education programmes, Parenting Through Separation, and Kia Manu Kia Ora for men.

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.

Thanks HEAPS to Inspire Net who sponsor our webhosting. Kai pai Inspire!
