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 2015 will be based around:

  • London area - Brentford, Grand Union Paddington Arm, Regents Canal and Lee & Stort
  • Canalway Cavalcade (Little Venice, Paddington)
    2-4 May Bank Holiday Weekend
  • GU Canal Paddington - Crick  
  • Crick Boat Show
    23-25 May Bank Holiday Weekend  
  • GU Leicester from Crick via Oxford Canal and Thames to Bath on the Kennet & Avon
  • Sponsored Walk on the Kennet & Avon
    4-25 July

Our cruising plans have had to change as a result of Tim's Dad passing to Glory on 20 July 2015. The sponsored walk has been temporarily suspended at Kintbury.

For the time being, were are moored in the Newbury area, and have settled into Bridge Church, Newbury. We await God's further plans for us.
