    About us

Sören Wichmann erzählt von seiner täglichen Arbeit im Seemannsclub

Unter den Corona Bedingungen ist diese Arbeit besonders schwer. Insbesondere hat sich sowohl der Bordbesuch, als auch der Besuch bei erkrankten oder Seeleuten, die mit erkrankten Seeleuten in Kontakt gekommen sind, verändert. Woher seine Kraft und seine Motivation stammt und was es mit "Fair übers Meer" auf sich hat, erfahren Sie in diesem Interview.

Mission

As a sailor's mission, we are sent to show in our words and deeds that the love of God is present and also revealed in the human for and with each other. We are committed to the works of Christian charity and responsibility for all human beings and the one world in which we live. By proclaiming our Christian faith, we want to be recognizable. We respect the beliefs and religions of sailors from other cultures. Seemannsmission is especially pastoral care. We understand pastoral care holistically as a concern for body and soul. What pleases, facilitates, encourages and liberates people leads us in our diaconal action.

Job

The German Seemans Mission is supported by the work of dedicated staff and volunteers. We welcome seafarers into over 35 ports around the world, taking time for talks and joint activities, offering them practical help and orientation abroad. The spirit of our facilities is characterized by enjoyment of work, openness, honesty and friendliness towards the guests. We are rooted in the Christian faith and our church, live and work in close bond within the German Seemans Mission in solidarity with the seafarers.
