Arriving from the Faroe Islands – 4th to 13th May 2018
Everyone is welcome on board and to the activities.

“As ”Juvel II” visits some of the harbours in Orkney, you are invited on board to have a guided tour of the ship and share in our refreshments, including Faroese cake 😉 You will meet the captain, the cook, the mu- sicians, and the rest of the group. All ages are welcome, including children with their parents and to them we offer painting, games and stories.”
Juvel II will be in Orkney: Kirkwall: May 4th – 6th, Lyness: May 7th – 8th, and Stromness: May 9th – 13th.
“On board we offer Songs of Praise, Youth evenings, a Men’s Evening, where they will enjoy the fellowship, sing and hear someone share a testimony. It’s relaxed, welcoming and topical and – of course – followed by refreshments!”
A Christian Bookshop and the charities, Cafe Bless and Go Go Olive, will be onboard on Saturday the 12th from 2 pm to 4 pm.

The goals of Atlantic Mission are:
– to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in our own and our neighbouring countries.
– to encourage the local church, and help them to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Fairtrade Fortnight 26th February – 11th March

Happy Fair Trade Fortnight everyone!

It’s from Monday 26th February and runs through till 11th March and is an ideal time to see all the fantastic products available and switch to even more fair trade items! The new catalogue is a great way to view them, or look on-line at

The new range of chocolate looks amazing and I bet tastes even better (or I’ll eat my hat!)
