As Mission Fest 2019 comes to a close it has been a great opportunity to meet new people and catch up with others from before. We have shared the story of the seafarer with people, including Chaplain Gary giving a seminar talk.
There were those who had not been aware of the seafarers and the life they lead and welcomed the work of the Mission to support them. Those with personal experience of life at sea or living with seafarers. Children who thought the time away from family must be hard.
It meant a lot to all the Chaplains and volunteers to be there and to literally stand up for seafarers and give them a voice.
We look forward to furthering some conversations with people who wanted to know more and to volunteer and those who we welcome to the Oopen House on Tuesday Feb 26th 4-8pm at the Waterfront Centre.
