The Mission to Seafarers Townsville has been caring for seafarers from around the world since 1927.
We provide a canteen, on-line store, recreation area, chapel, library and quiet space for visiting crew. Our ethos is to be inclusive and offer hospitality to all visitors, both seafaring and port based. The Mission facilitates assistance in times of personal need for our visiting seafarers – from ship to shore. We can also provide transport to shops and local places of interest.
The Mission to Seafarers is an international mission of the Anglican Church that cares for the practical and spiritual welfare of seafarers of all nationalities and faiths.
The Mission offers Pastoral Care services which provides understanding, care and support in times of need. The onsite Chapel is open for private prayer and mass. Christian literature and Bibles are free to crew. Some devotional items may be purchased online or from the canteen. For other religions, please seek advice from the Mission volunteers onsite.
