On behalf of the Chaplain and the Management Committee of the Mission to Seafarers (MTS) – Durban Station, we welcome you to our 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM). In 2019 we enjoyed a new format for the AGM at the Royal Natal Yacht Club. It was a splendid affair! Last year, due to the Covid- 19 pandemic, we used a digital videoconference platform for the AGM, also a new format but not quite as grand. A year later and Covid-19 is still a reality and so we again meet for an online AGM. The impact of the pandemic on seafarers also continues unabated. We remember them in our prayers at this time. We look forward to the day when we will once again meet in person.
