New England Seafarers Mission began in the 1880s with the arrival of the Swedish Covenant Church during the great Scandanavian immigration to the US. We began with a single pastor who worked the waterfront, visiting primarily crews from the many Swedish ships calling in Boston. Over the years, that ministry grew to include people from all over the world.

Mission Work Day

A Mission mini-makeover day

Shout out for Help                                            

Hi Everyone,      

   We have a few work projects lined up for Saturday March 28th here at the New England Seafarers Mission.  I’m asking for some willing workers to come join us for a few hours to help rearrange our store and move a couple of drink refrigerators. If you can spare a few hours, we will be here 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. If you could let me know in advance, I’ll know what to plan for.

Thanks so much,


Pizza lunch is on us!

Ministry Update

Our 2015 Cruise Ministry Calendar is now up and running. You may notice we are now using a public Google Calendar for our Cruise schedule. This means you don't have to leave our site to look for volunteer opportunities. The first ships arrive in late April and continue through the fall, endiing in the first week of November. As usual, the busiest time is during September and October (we even have a stretch of 16 STRAIGHT DAYS of ships!)

I'll be posting more information about the sign-up process and FAQ's about Mission Ministry, but for now, thanks for browsing and hope to see you soon. - Chaplain Steve.
