Mission to Seafarers Bahrain: The mission agency, funded entirely by voluntary donations and legacies, offers a comprehensive ministry of care to all who live and work at sea. There are seafarers’ centres in 121 ports around the world. The work in Bahrain is being reimagined with potential expansion in Dammam, Saudi Arabia
We Praise God for the people whom God has given in St Christopher’s Cathedral and Awali who are generous in supporting this ministry through prayer and for all those who seek the welfare of the seafarers.
We rejoice for the partnership with Bahrain International Seafarers’ Society. We pray for the Seafarers’ Centres in Khalifa Bin Salman Port and Arab Shipping Repairing Yard where the seafarers are welcomed and united with families and friends.
We pray for God’s wisdom and leading towards the new endeavour for working among the “Fishermen”.
We pray for new ways to serve the seafarers after Covid -19, that we may be permitted to visit ships and that the Seafarers’ Centre may be opened.
We pray for the ecumenical spirit we have with other churches who support our ministries – Sacred Heart Church and guest congregations in the St Christopher’s compound.
We pray that the spiritual assistance, literature, counselling, and Holy Communion offered to the Seafarers will strengthen them in their faith journey.
