Once again this year we are supporting the Mission to Seafarers as they bring a little joy to seafarers far from home and family this Christmas.
The Mission to Seafarers cares for the practical and spiritual welfare of seafarers of all nationalities and faiths in some 230 ports around the world. Working through a network of chaplains, lay staff and volunteers, they offer a welcome, friendship and practical help and support in times of need or crisis, either on their ships or ashore in the Mission`s centres.
In Dunkerque, the centre is the place where seafarers can relax away from their ships, telephone or email home and buy essentials. As part of the Anglican Church, the Mission also offers spiritual support and opportunities for worship.
Reverend Ben Humphries and his team work closely with other churches in Dunkerque, especially at Christmas time. Your generous gifts last year enabled him to reach out to seafarers far from home and family over Christmas, and we hope to do the same this year.
Please support them during Advent by donating some of these items, which we will deliver to Dunkerque in time for distribution at Christmas – and if you’d like to join Ben as he visits some of the ships, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
