For more than 150 years The Mission to Seafarers has brought compassion and care to seafarers in desperate need around the world.
We changed our name to the Mission to Seafarers.
We appointed our first chaplain.
We moved to St Michael Paternoster Royal which was opened by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, on 19 December 1968.
The Mission to Seaman was created, bringing together several Anglican ministries in one organisation, including the Bristol Channel Mission.
Our founder, John Ashley set up the Bristol Channel Mission.
