Welcome friends, how can we help?

Today well over a million men and women live in the twilight world of big shipping. It's a lonely life. They roam the world's oceans for up to 12 months at a time. They come from more than 100 different nations and speak dozens of languages.

We care enough to visit them. Our team of SCFS Friends based in 40 ports around the world spend their days boarding ship after ship. An SCFS Friend brings a welcome, an offer of friendship or a chance for a sympathetic talk and news of the Christian gospel.
