This year, the Fishermen’s Mission is celebrating 140 years since its founding by Ebenezer Mather. “To give thanks for the wonderful work that has been achieved by all those who have been part of our family over so many years, we are holding an online thanksgiving service,” says the charity.

The service will be held via Zoom on 12 November at 12pm and will last approximately an hour. There will be a chance to have a coffee and chat after the service in smaller groups, also using Zoom.

All are welcome to join the Mission for this celebration. You can join on the day by going to: and entering the meeting ID: 835 8029 5916 and the passcode: 234466.
