NB Sola Gratia - Cruising and Ministry


Canal Ministries


Discover more about the work of Canal Ministries on the waterways.

Canal Ministries has been established as a direct response to Gods’ calling of Christian boaters who have a heart for full time evangelism, teaching and training God’s people Churches and throughout the country, not always by waterways.

We make ourselves available to any Church that can use the variety of gifts with which the Lord has blessed us.

Its members belong to the Boaters' Christian Fellowship, but Canal Ministries is a separate organisation with its own trustees.

The member boats cruise throughout the navigable system, and try to cover different areas.

Our cruising plan for 2018 ministry will be based around:

  • Birmingham and the Black Country
  • Stratford and GU Canals Birmingham - Crick  
  • Crick Boat Show
    26-28 May Bank Holiday Weekend  
  • Crick to Ellesmere - route undecided as yet, but including a trip on the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct!
  • Mission in Ellesmere
    28 July - 5 Aug
  • Return to the West Midlands for the:
    Black Country Boating Festival (14-16 Sep )and
    Tipton Canal Festival (21-23 Sep)

Our cruising plans from Crick to the Llangollen Canal and then back to the Black Country remain flexible at present. There are several routes we could go. We will pin these down nearer the time.
