Women’s Group – October Meeting

The Women’s Group met on 20th October at St. Luke’s Church in Polis with 17 attendances. The speaker, Ken Wiseman, the Chaplain to the Seafarers’ mission in Cyprus gave us an understanding on the work and challenges involved.

The Mission to Seafarers (MTS) is a diverse organisation – yet with a united purpose: working in 257 ports (including 5 in the Cyprus chaplaincies) in 76 countries showing the LOVE OF GOD for men and women who sustain our lives yet are sometimes forgotten.

The Limassol Mission is based in one of the largest centres of Maritime traffic in the European Union.

  • The volunteers welcomed 7,254 visitors lest year.
  • 507 ships were visited.
  • They raised awareness in various local churches, clubs, societies and shipping companies.

The Limassol MTS is open 5 days a week and, even closed, Seafarers are able to use their 24/7 Wifi facility.

If you would like to know about the Mission or would like to help in anyway please contact Ken on 99 539144 or
