Mission to Seafarers – Beanies and Volunteers Needed

Mission to Seafarers – Beanies and Volunteers Needed

The Mission to Seafarers has been in Wellington since 1899, and a Seafarers Centre was first opened in 1903.

Since our early beginnings in Wellington the Seafarers Centre has provide a refuge for seafarers when they come ashore.  At the centre seafarers can connect to home via Wi-Fi, can purchase personal items, and can rest and relax with a coffee and some home baking plus grab a beanie when the weather in Wellington is cold.  The Seafarers Centre operates through the generosity of volunteers who man the centre.  We open from 10.00am till 10.00pm every day of the year.

We are so grateful for the continuing supply of beanies for seafarers who visit the centre.  Now as the first official day of winter has past, please encourage the people who do knitting and crocheting in your parishes to keep up the supply.  Beanies may be either sent or delivered to the Anglican Centre, 18 Eccleston Hill, Thorndon.

We are also looking for volunteers to add to our roster.  If you are able to give three to four hours once a week, once a fortnight or once a month, and are keen to be involved in cutting edge cross-cultural mission right on your doorstep, then we would love to hear from you.  Contact Reverend Lance Lukin on 022 620 2440, or email lance.lukin67@gmail.com.
