The Anglican mission agency Mission to Seafarers (MtS) is linking up with its German counterparts in a ground-breaking initiative to provide support for the maritime community in the British ports on the River Tees. The Deutsche Seemannsmission (DSM) – or German Seamen’s Mission, part of the Evangelical Church in Germany – has had chaplains in the Tees and Middlesbrough ports for some time. Now, the two DSM chaplains in the area will oversee the MtS mission centres on both sides of the River Tees.
