A day in the life of the Norwegian Seaman's Mission

Our March meeting on 13th March we had Astrid Stenholt who delighted us with her personal tales from Aberdeen and throughout Scotland.. She manages the Norwegian Seaman’s Church and visits Norwegian ships that dock in Scotland… where-ever! they are docked

Last year the Seaman’s Church hosted over 1000 ships that docked in Scotland - mostly in Aberdeen, Peterhead and Montrose. Fortunately, they’ve also had ships docking on the west coast as well.

These ships mainly do supply, mainly in the oil and fish industries. Most ships hold many Norwegians with a few foreign nationals to a few Norwegians to many foreign nationals usually European or Philippines. Of course, there is also an “on-shore” Norwegian/Scottish community made up of all ages from small kids, students, families, adults and elderly, who also enjoy the Norwegian Seaman's Church.
