Our Mission


Port of Bristol Seafarers Centre provides support to seafarers visiting Portbury and Avonmouth


We aim to promote the spiritual, moral and physical well-being of seafarers and their families, and other sea travellers, who cannot benefit from the normal means of pastoral care, without distinction of creed or nationality. Achieved by the maintenance of the Port of Bristol seafarers centre and ship visiting.

Who We Are


The Centre is always happy to receive donations of used mens' clothing and knitted items such as blankets, hats, knitted teddies/dolls and also unwanted gifts, all of which are given free to the Seafarers

At Christmas time we make up boxes or bags of new items which are given to the Seafarers as a Christmas Gift.  Any items for inclusion are greatly appreciated.  These can be toiletries, socks, chocolate, note books etc.
