“What an amazing ministry!”
An oft-heard comment from people when they are informed about the work of the Missions to Seafarers. This response usually leads to gospel partnerships being established.

 

Our mission work seeks to care for seafarers in every way, including physical needs and emotional support. But at the heart of the care offered is the gospel, the saving good news of Jesus Christ.

 

Our Vision

  • To share the good news of Jesus Christ with all seafaring people from all nations.

  • To support the welfare and treatment of all seafarers in Western Australian waters through chaplaincy services.

  • To provide a place where seafarers can find rest and recreation in a supportive and relaxed environment.
