Pastor Dan Phannenhour is the part-time Chaplain for Hamilton.

The Centre is located at 651 Burlington St. E.

The Port of Hamilton serves the steel, agriculture and petroleum industries. During the Shipping season the Port of Hamilton is visited by an average of 200 ocean vessels and 200 Lakers. The port is spread out over a very vast area, which means that at one time this past season we had as many as 8 salties in at one time. The Hamilton mission also assists vessels in the Welland Canal including Port Weller, Port Colbourne and Port Robinson. 

We offer free Wi-Fi at the centre along with pool table and small tuck shop selling souvenirs.  Ivitta and SIM4crew SIM cards and top ups are available as well. Free on-board Covid vaccines are available on request, and transportation is provided to areas within a 10 kilometer radius from the mission. Consumption of alcohol at the centre is prohibited.
