How can you, your Church, group or organisation support the work of the Waterways Chaplains?

Have a look here for some inspiration.

Mission Partnership

Is your Church fairly near to a river or canal? You could join with us and maybe have a Waterways Champion through whom you could help practically and spiritually, supporting our work on your ‘patch’. You might additionally designate one day a year where you remember the work on the waterways to reflect on what has previously happened, encourage new recruits and reflect on how better you could help in the new year.

Waterways Chaplains Mission Partners, CovenIn June 2016, St Paul’s Church, Coven, Wolverhampton, signed a Mission Partnership Agreement to help the Waterways Chaplaincy particularly in their area. They have already held prayer walks along the canal, talked to boaters and blessed boats. Here is Senior Chaplain Revd. Mark Chester with Fr Malcolm Lockey and the Church Warden Mary Parton.
